Orlando Iles, a 24-year-old black man, was shot and killed Wednesday, Nov. 6, in the 3700 block of West 36th Street in West Adams, according to L.A. County coroner’s records.
Iles and another person were sitting in a parked car in front of a house at about 1:40 a.m. when a gray or silver SUV pulled alongside and a person inside fired several gunshots, said LAPD Det. Supervisor Sal LaBarbera. Iles and the passenger were struck.
Detectives believe the homicide was not gang related, he said.
Iles was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:32 a.m., said Ed Winter, a spokesman with the coroner’s office.
