A story for every victim

Bryan Wooden, 38

Hiram T. Wooden Jr., 39, a black man, was found shot on Seaton Avenue near 5th and Alameda streets in Los Angeles at about 1 a.m. Friday, Aug. 10.

A passerby found Wooden, wounded and bleeding, and started to drive him to the hospital. Wooden's blood flowed all over the interior of his van, said Central Division Lt. Paul Vernon. Wooden's would-be rescuer saw an ambulance, flagged it down and handed his wounded passenger off to paramedics. The paramedics took him to a hospital, where he died about an hour later. Investigators believe he had been stabbed, and said another non-fatal stabbing in the area a few hours earlier might be related. Anyone with information is asked to call the LAPD at (877) LAWFULL (877-529-3855).
