Luis Alberto Fuentes Jr., a 22-year-old Latino, died Monday, Oct. 16, after he was shot in the 8600 block of Graham Avenue in the Florence-Firestone area of South Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
Fuentes was standing outside a liquor store near Graham Avenue and Firestone Boulevard about 4 p.m. when he and another young man were confronted by a Latino in his early 20s, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Alfred.
