Jimmie Jackson Jr., a 21-year-old black man, was shot and killed Monday, Jan. 2, in the 10600 block of South St. Andrew’s Place in Gramercy Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.
Officials responded to multiple 911 calls about 3:15 p.m., and Jackson was transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 4 p.m., authorities said.
“He was basically sitting in his car, waiting for his friend, when a vehicle drove up and multiple gunshots were fired,” said LAPD Criminal Gang Homicide Det. C. Valento.
Jackson was struck multiple times in the upper body, Valento said, and witnesses described the vehicle as a dark-colored sedan. Only Jackson was injured in the shooting.
Authorities said there were some indications that the shooting was gang-related, but added that the victim was not documented to have any gang affiliations.
No arrests have been made in connection with the homicide. Investigators describe the suspect as a black male, 18 to 20 years of age.
Anyone with information about the killing is asked to contact Dets. Valento and S. Szymkowiak at (213) 485-1383. Tipsters who would like to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (800) 222-8477.
