Lewis Mingo, 65
Lewis Mingo, a 65-year-old black man, was found shot dead in the underground parking structure of an apartment building at 4203 W. Rosecrans Blvd. in Lawndale at about 1:45 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 29.
Deputies responded to a shots-fired call, and found him dead. Investigators believe several people were in the garage shortly beforehand, playing a game of dominoes, but it is unclear what led to the shooting, said sheriff's homicide Lt. Gil Carrillo. Mingo lived in the apartment complex, and worked as an apartment manager, he said.
