Anthony Oscar Iniguez, 20
Anthony Oscar Iniguez, a 20-year-old Latino, died Tuesday, June 20, after he was shot near 252nd Street and Normandie Avenue in Harbor City, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
Iniguez was riding his bicycle north on Normandie Avenue at 12:45 a.m. June 17 when he was shot once in the head, Los Angeles Police Det. Scott Coffee said.
He was taken to a hospital, where he died three days later, at 2:38 p.m. June 20, according to coroner’s records.
Detectives think Iniguez was on his way home and was riding his bike alone. Police still are trying to determine whether the shooter walked up to Iniguez or drove by and opened fire, Coffee said.
Iniguez was not a documented gang member, but he could have been shot by gang members in the area, Coffee said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Coffee at (310) 726-7887. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
