A story for every victim

Katrina Rene Harris, 28

Katrina Rene Harris, a 28-year-old black woman, was shot and killed Saturday, May 10, in the 19700 block of South Enslow Drive in Carson, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Harris was at a family gathering at a home about 10:30 p.m. when a fight broke out in the street in front, said Lt. Dave Coleman with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

People had gathered to watch the fight when a black man pulled out a gun and began firing at the crowd, striking Harris and a 25-year-old black man.

“It’s our understanding she was just a bystander,” Coleman said.

Harris was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:17 p.m., according to coroner’s records. The 25-year-old man who was shot is expected to survive.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
