About 8 p.m., Doss was standing in the street when two people walked up to him, and at least one person began shooting, said Los Angeles Police Det. Chris Barling. There were other people standing nearby, but no one else was injured.

The two assailants ran to a vehicle and fled, police said.

Doss was not a gang member, but may have been mistaken for one, Barling said.
