A story for every victim

Dwayne Damion Cover, 33

Dwayne Damion Cover, a 33-year-old black man, was fatally shot on Friday, May 10, in the 1600 block of West 205th Street in Harbor-Gateway, according to L.A. County coroner’s records.

Police responded to a 911 call at 5:35 a.m. from a resident who reported hearing eight or nine gunshots in an apartment building. Officers found Cover, Courtney George Murray, 44, and Laurent Kenroy Latty, 33,  with gunshot wounds, LAPD officials said.

Cover, of Torrance, was found in the living room of the apartment with a gunshot wound to the torso, coroner’s records show. He died at 6:05 a.m.

About a block away, police found a fourth shooting victim covered in blood and walking near Del Amo Boulevard and Western Avenue, said LAPD Officer Christopher No.

Authorities said a red Dodge Charger and a gray Ford Explorer were seen speeding away from the scene. The attack did not appear to be random, police said, and investigators are looking into whether a dispute over drugs led to the shooting.
