De Marco Rankin, a 32-year-old black man, was shot and killed Wednesday, April 19, in the 2900 block of Stocker Plaza in Leimert Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
About 2:20 p.m., Rankin was sitting in the front passenger seat of a silver Ford pickup at 8th Avenue and Stocker Plaza when a dark-colored sedan pulled up, Los Angeles Police Det. Dave Garrido said.
A black man exited the vehicle, approached the truck and fired multiple shots into the vehicle, Garrido said.
Rankin, who got out of the truck and collapsed a short distance away, was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:30 p.m., according to coroner’s records.
