Gregory Anderson, a 26-year-old black man, was fatally shot Thursday, June 24, in the 700 block of North Willowbrook in Compton, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Anderson was riding his bike in the middle of the street about 7:13 p.m. when he was approached by an unknown assailant and shot several times, said sheriff's homicide Detective Q. Rodriguez, who is handling the investigation.

Authorities were called and Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:30 p.m., according to coroner's records.
