Lakeisha Glendora Lynall, a 32-year-old Latina, was shot and killed Wednesday, March 25 in the 1000 block of West 105th Street in Westmont, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 1:15 a.m., Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to the area and found Lynall in an alley with  a gunshot wound, according to a news release from the department.

Lynall was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:25 a.m., said Ed Winter, assistant chief of investigations for the coroner’s office.

Deputies put a suspect description out on the radio and about 20 minutes later, found a man matching the description in an alley near the 1000 block of South Vermont Avenue , Lt. Victor Lewandowski said.

The man, later identified as Victor Daniel Terrazas, a 28-year-old Latino, fired at deputies, who returned fire.

Deputies recovered a shotgun at the scene, which is believed to have been the weapon used to kill Lynall and was fired at deputies.

Lewandowski said that Lynall and Terrazas had been in a relationship for about four years but did not have any children.

“There was a conversation before the shooting, but we don’t know what that was,” he said. “We don’t know what sparked the violence.”
