Hugo Hidalgo, 24

Hugo Hidalgo, a 24-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Sunday, March 27, in the 17200 block of Glenhope Drive in Valinda, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Hidalgo, who is from La Puente, was at a house party about 12:09 a.m. when a verbal altercation occurred in the backyard, said Ed Winter, spokesman for the coroner's office.

Two assailants began shooting and Hidalgo was hit several times in the abdomen and back, coroner's records show.

It was unclear if Hidalgo was involved in the fight.

He was taken to County-USC Medical Center where he died at 2:21 a.m., Winter said.

Authorities believe that the shooting may have been gang-related.
