A story for every victim

Marquez Dejon Trammel, 21

Marquez Dejon Trammel, a 21-year-old black man, was shot and killed Thursday, Oct. 26, in the 19400 block of Pricetown Avenue in Carson, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Trammel was standing in front of his home with another young man when they were approached by two black males about 8:50 p.m., said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Rodney Moore. 

The newcomers “said something to the victims and immediately after started shooting at the victims,” Moore said. “The victims ran away, but they were both struck by gunfire.”

Trammel was pronounced dead at the scene at 9 p.m., according to coroner’s records. The other victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Moore said. 

It’s not clear whether Trammel and the other victim are related or just friends, Moore said. 

The suspects walked up to Trammel’s residence, Moore said, but they may have gotten into a vehicle after the shooting to leave. 

Investigators don’t have a motive for the shooting, Moore said. They are still trying to determine if both suspects fired at the victims, or just one. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
