A story for every victim

Andre Alexander Howard, 23

Andre Alexander Howard, a 23-year-old black man, was fatally shot Saturday, Feb. 6, in the 3400 block of West 67th Street in Hyde Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 12:45 p.m., Howard was standing in the area when a person rode up on a bicycle, LAPD Det. Chris Barling said.

There was a small verbal exchange, then the man pulled out a gun and shot Howard.

Howard ran east and collapsed at the back door of a beauty salon, Barling said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene at 1 p.m., according to coroner’s records. 

So far, the gunman has been described as a Latino in his late teens or early 20s, Barling said.

The killing does not appear to be racially motivated, he said.
