Robert Acosta, a 20-year-old Latino, was shot and killed early Sunday, March 14, in an alley in the 6000 block of Templeton Street in Huntington Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Authorities responding to reports of an argument followed by gunfire found Acosta with a gunshot wound to his head about 1 a.m., said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office. Acosta was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:16 a.m., Winter said.

 Winter said the shooter apparently fled on foot.
