Raul Sanchez Jr., a 21-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Saturday, Sept. 6, in the 5300 block of Valley Boulevard in El Sereno, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
About 12:20 a.m., Sanchez and a woman were standing in front of a building when a light-colored midsize sedan pulled up, said LAPD Det. Jose Ramirez.
The right front passenger asked Sanchez what gang he was from and then shot at him multiple times, Ramirez said.
