A story for every victim

Duane Travon O'Steen, 30

Duane Travon O'Steen, a 40-year-old black man, was shot and killed Friday, June 2 in the 200 block of West 89th Street in Broadway-Manchester, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

About 9:45 p.m., O'Steen was standing in front of a home with other people who were gathered to celebrate a birthday, said Los Angeles Police Det. Dave Garrido.

A sedan traveling eastbound on West 89th Street drove by the home, and a person inside began firing at the group, Garrido said.

O'Steen along with three others -- two women and a man -- were wounded. O'Steen was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:56 p.m., according to coroner's records.

The other three victims were treated for their injuries and are expected to survive.

Detectives believe the shooting may be related to an ongoing gang fued in the area, Garrido said.
