A story for every victim

Brandi Lorraine Parham, 35

Brandi Lorraine Parham, a 35-year-old Black woman, was shot and killed Tuesday, Aug. 4 in the 13200 block of Mulholland Drive in Beverly Crest, according to Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's records.

At 12:45 a.m., a shooting broke out at a mansion party where Parham, another man and a woman were injured. Police arrived and found the victims in the driveway of the home, according to KTLA

Two other people were injured in the incident but it’s unclear how. Police said the shooting might be related to gang activity and social media. 

Gabriel Cervantes, who attended the party, said that gunfire broke out as the party was winding down and told KTLA that the event was a birthday party for an athlete. 

Police had visited the mansion hours beforehand, about 7 p.m., after receiving multiple calls of a disturbance. Officers cited and impounded some vehicles that were illegally parked but did not break up the party even though gatherings of any size are prohibited under Los Angeles County’s coronavirus health order.

In an online fundraising page, Parham was described as the mother of three children.
