Nickolas William Clouse, a 33-year-old white man, was shot and killed Sunday, Dec. 25, in the 10800 block of Redfern Avenue in the Lennox area south of Inglewood, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
Residents told investigators they heard multiple gunshots around 9 p.m. and that when they looked outside, they saw Clouse lying in the street, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Troy Ewing.
Clouse, who had been shot, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:46 p.m., according to coroner’s records.
Witnesses said they saw two men running away from the scene but had no further description, Ewing said.
Clouse was affiliated with a gang that claims that residential area, Ewing said, and investigators believe the shooting may be gang-related.
