A story for every victim

Bryan Erives, 30

Bryan Erives, a 30-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Saturday, Dec. 2, in the 14400 block of Pioneer Boulevard in Norwalk, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Erives was sitting in his car behind R&G’s Food Basket around 8:50 p.m. when several Latino adults approached, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Alfred.

“They had a short conversation, asking him about his gang affiliation, and then one of them opened fire on him,” Alfred said. 

He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:45 p.m., according to coroner’s records. 

Witnesses heard the gunfire and saw the suspects running away, Alfred said. There were early reports about a brown jeep leaving the scene, but investigators aren’t sure whether the men got into a vehicle or fled on foot. 

Erives lived in Norwalk, about a mile from where he was shot, Alfred said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
