Cecilio Hernandez, 46

Cecilio Hernandez, a 46-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Wednesday, June 14 in the 10400 block of South Olive Street in Broadway-Manchester, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 11:30 a.m., officers from the LAPD’s Southeast Division responded to a call of a shooting and found Hernandez outside a dark-colored van, said Los Angeles Police Det. Dave Garrido.

Hernandez was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:03 p.m., according to coroner’s records.

Witnesses told police that Hernandez was involved in an argument with a woman inside the van when a dark-colored sedan pulled up and three to four black men got out and walked up to Hernandez’s van, Garrido said.

One of the men opened fire into the passenger side, striking Hernandez. The woman was not injured.
