A story for every victim

Aaron Andre Roseboro, 23

Aaron Andre Roseboro, a 23-year-old black man, was shot and killed Sunday, April 23, in the 400 block of East 116th Street in Green Meadows, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 9:40 p.m., Roseboro walked outside his home to meet his cousin Shakere Chambers, 23, who had parked her car down the street, police said.

The two were approaching Roseboro’s driveway when a vehicle traveling east on East 116th Street stopped, Los Angeles Police Det. Nathan Kouri said. 

Two people got out of the car and began shooting in the direction of Chambers and Roseboro, Kouri said. The shooters then got back into the car and continued east.

Roseboro was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:34 p.m., according to coroner’s records. Chambers died at the scene.

Police described the shooters’ vehicle as a dark, four-door sedan. They think one other person, a driver, also was involved in the fatal shooting.

Neither Chambers nor Roseboro was involved in gang activity, family members and police said. The cousins were getting together to record music on the night they were killed.

Chambers was an aspiring rapper and Roseboro an aspiring music producer, family members said.
