The coroner Wednesday released the name of the 19-year-old killed in a Compton shooting in which another man was wounded.

Felipe Martinez Garcia was a Paramount resident, coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz said.

The shooting was reported at 2:45 p.m. Saturday in the 800 block of West Arbutus Street, Deputy Morgan Arteaga of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said.

Deputies responded to the scene on a shots fired call, Arteaga said.

“When the deputies arrived, they located two male victims suffering from gunshot wounds in the wash area behind the location,” she said.

Both men were taken to a hospital where the victim now identified as Garcia was pronounced dead, and the other was in critical condition.

No suspect information was available.

Anyone with information on the killing is asked to call homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500.
