The homicide comes less than a week after some person(s) opened fire on or near a group of residents/friends at an outdoor gathering in the 1st Council district neighborhood west of the L.A. river (Harbor Ave. north of PCH); residents initially thought the sounds were more illegal fireworks until LBPD arrived and found shell casings. No one was hit; LBPD says it's not immediately clear if the gunfire targeted people attending the event.
