Ronald L. Rawleigh (2010-05-18)

Ronald Rawleigh, a 50-year-old black man, was found shot to death Tuesday, May 18, across from the 7600 block of Miramonte Boulevard in Florence-Firestone, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

About 3:30 a.m., residents in the area heard gunshots fired, but did not call 911, said Ed Winter, spokesman for the coroner's office.

It was not until about three hours later that a driver saw Rawleigh's body on the street and alerted authorities, Winter said.

When deputies arrived, Rawleigh -- who had been shot several times --  was pronounced dead at the scene, according to coroner's records.

Anyone with information about the death of Ronald Rawleigh is asked to contact Det. Karen Shonka at the sheriff's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500.
