Eric Nicanor, 15
Eric Nicanor, a 15-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Sunday, Nov. 8, in the 1500 block of Hoover Street in Pico-Union, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
About 6:45 p.m. Sunday, Nicanor was standing in a small group in front of an apartment building when a man rode up on a bike and shot at him and a 16-year-old, said Los Angeles Police Department Detective Ray Martinez.
“It seems as though they were targeted,” Martinez said.
The assailant then fled on the bicycle. Nicanor was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6:49 p.m., according to coroner’s records.
The 16-year-old also was taken to a hospital and was being treated for his injuries. Police do not yet know why the assailant opened fire and authorities are looking for the gunman.
