A story for every victim

Jorge Alberto Esteban, 22

Jorge Alberto Esteban, a 22-year-old Latino, died Wednesday, May 9, after he was shot in the 14700 block of Texaco Avenue in Paramount, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Residents found Esteban lying on the ground with gunshot wounds in front of Salud Park around 10:30 p.m. May 8, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Alfred said. 

He was taken to a hospital, where he died at 5:22 a.m. the following day, according to coroner’s records.

No one saw the shooting, Alfred said, but residents heard gunfire and reported seeing a dark-colored sedan speeding away.

Investigators don’t know whether the shooter was in the car or on foot and think the attack was gang-related. 

Esteban lived not far from where he was shot, Alfred said.
