A story for every victim

Enrique Beltran, 21

Enrique Beltran, 21, a Latino youth, was shot in the head at 10926 Truro Ave. in Lennox and died at 9:07 p.m. Monday, April 23.

He was standing with a male friend, also Latino, down the block when another Latino man about 18 to 22 years old got out of a dark-colored Honda-type car and started shooting, sheriff's investigators said. The friend ran and made it to the cover of a parked car; he was shot in the leg, treated at a local hospital and released.

Beltran didn't make it, and died at the scene. The suspect fled. Deputies at the Lennox station a couple of blocks away heard the gunfire.
