Daniel Ivan Santamaria Ramirez, 31

Daniel Ivan Ramirez, a 31-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Thursday, March 5, in the 6700 block of Miles Avenue in Huntington Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m., Ramirez got into an argument with three acquaintances, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

Ramirez wanted to borrow a handgun from one of the other men, said Lt. Cosme Lozano with the Huntington Park Police Department.

One of the men, later identified as Jorge Godoy, a 22-year-old Latino, refused, and allegedly shot Ramirez. Ramirez was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:47 p.m., according to the coroner’s office.

Gody was arrested on suspicion of murder later that day.
