Ardis Edward Brown Jr. (2009-08-27)

Ardis Brown Jr., a 36-year-old black man, died Thursday, Aug. 27, 2009, 11 days after he was shot in the 3000 block of West 113th Street in Inglewood, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Brown was attending a party with family members a little after midnight on Aug. 16 when he was approached by a person and shot, said Inglewood Police Department homicide Det. Michael Han, who is handling the investigation.

Several others were hit by gunfire but did not suffer life-threatening injuries, Han said.

After the shooting, authorities were called and Brown was taken to a hospital in Torrance, where he remained until he died 11 days later, according to coroner's records.

Han said there have been no arrests made in connection with the case.

[Note: This homicide did not appear on the report at the time of Brown's death. It was added Aug. 19, 2010, after The Times was contacted about the omission by a family friend.]

Anyone with information about the identity of the shooter or details about Brown's death is asked to contact Han at (310) 412-4379.
