A story for every victim

Jorge Luis Chan, 52

Jorge Luis Chan, a 52-year-old Asian man, was fatally shot Friday, Aug. 4, near Main Street and Strand Street in Santa Monica, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

About 6:30 p.m., Santa Monica police received multiple calls about a shooting, according to a news release. Upon arriving, officers found Chan suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Chan was transported to a hospital, where he died at 7:16 p.m., according to coroner’s records. 

As officers searched the area near 3rd Street and Hollister Avenue, they found Christopher Charles Davis, 46, who matched the description of the shooter. Davis had a handgun and pointed the weapon at police, authorities said.

Several other officers arrived and confronted Davis, which led to an exchange of gunfire. Davis was struck and taken into custody. He later was transported to a hospital, where was treated for his wounds, police said.

On Aug. 8, prosecutors charged Davis with murder, two counts of attempted murder, as well as one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and a felon in possession of a firearm. He is scheduled return to court on Aug. 22 for a preliminary hearing.
