Cindy Yaneth Lopez Vasquez, a 28-year-old Latina, was shot and killed Thursday, July 18, in the 900 block of North Oxford Avenue in East Hollywood, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
About 2:20 p.m., officers responded to a call of a shooting in the area and found Lopez Vasquez suffering from gunshot wounds, said Los Angeles police Det. Dave Vinton.
