Jimmy Jimenez, 29 [Update]

Jimmy Jimenez, a 29-year-old Latino man, was fatally shot Saturday, July 24, in the 300 block of West Lohart Avenue in Montebello, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Authorities received a call of shots fired late that evening, said Sgt. Mike Flores of the Montebello Police Department. When police arrived, they found Jimenez shot several times. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:59 p.m., according to coroner's records.

No one else was hurt during the incident, Flores said.

Witnesses to the shooting described the assailant as a male Latino in his 20s. He was last seen fleeing the area in an early 2000s white sport utility vehicle.

Investigators believe the shooting may be gang-related.

[Note: This homicide did not appear on a coroner's report several weeks ago. It was added Sept. 8, 2010, after a reader contacted The Times about Jimenez's death.]

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Montebello Police Department at (323) 887-1297.
