A story for every victim

Joseph McMillan II, 18

Joseph McMillan II, an 18-year-old black man, was shot and killed on an MTA bus Wednesday, Oct. 13, near West Manchester and Crenshaw boulevards in Inglewood, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

The 2:55 p.m. attack appears to be gang-related, said Lt. Oscar Serrano of the Inglewood Police Department.

The bus had stopped for a red light when a gunman walked up and fired multiple shots, fatally wounding McMillan, police said.

"It appears he was the intended target, based on witness information," Serrano said.

McMillan was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Serrano said a suspect was apprehended by police and was expected to be interviewed by detectives.

The Times has contacted investigators to obtain more information about the case and will provide an update when additional details are available.
