A story for every victim

Warren Christopher Bood, 27

Warren C. Bood, a 27-year-old black man, was shot and killed Wednesday, April 19, in the 7600 block of South San Pedro Street in Florence, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 6:25 p.m., Bood was standing at East 76th and South San Pedro streets when a minivan pulled up, Los Angeles Police Det. Dave Garrido said. “Words were exchanged,” Garrido said, and the vehicle continued on.

Bood then crossed the street and entered a business. He exited and walked back across the street. At that time, a Latino walked around the corner and opened fire at Bood, Garrido said.

Bood was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:10 p.m., according to coroner’s records.
