Sean McKinley, 25

Sean McKinley, a 25-year-old black man, was shot and killed Sunday, Feb. 7, in the 1700 block of North Castlegate Avenue in Compton, authorities said.

Details about McKinley's killing remain sketchy, but Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies said they were called to the 1700 block of Castlegate Avenue, near the junction of the 710 and 105 freeways, about 7 p.m. A woman was also injured in the incident.

Both people were taken to the hospital, where McKinley was pronounced dead. The woman was treated for an injury that was not considered life-threatening, according to the Sheriff’s Department. Detectives believe the killing is gang-related.
