A story for every victim

Carl Washington, 44 [Updated]

Carl Washington, a 44-year-old black man, was shot and killed Sunday, July 18, in the 19600 block of Harlan Avenue in Carson, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

The shooting occurred about 4:00 a.m. in front of Washington's home, said sheriff's homicide Detective Robert Kenney, who is handling the investigation.

Witnesses reported seeing suspects flee the scene, heading north on Harlan in a white sport-utility vehicle, he said.

[For the record: An earlier version of this post said the suspects were last seen going south on Harlan.]

Washington was taken to a hospital, where he died. Authorities said the incident appeared to be gang-related.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Det. Kenney or Joe Espino at (323) 890-5500.

[For the record: An earlier version of this post incorrectly placed the scene of the shooting on Harland Avenue in Beverly Hills.]
