A story for every victim

Shakere Tasahi Chambers, 23

Shakere “Keke” Tasahi Chambers, a 23-year-old black woman, was shot and killed Sunday, April 23, in the 400 block of East 116th Street in Green Meadows, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

At 9:40 p.m., Chambers and her cousin Aaron Roseboro, 23, were walking toward Roseboro’s driveway when a vehicle traveling east on East 116th Street stopped, Los Angeles Police Det. Nathan Kouri said.

Two people got out of the car and began shooting in the direction of Chambers and Roseboro, Kouri said. The shooters then got back into the car and continued east.

Chambers was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:01 p.m., according to coroner’s records. Roseboro died at an area hospital.

Police described the shooters’ vehicle as a dark, four-door sedan. They think one other person, a driver, also was involved in the fatal shooting.

Neither Chambers nor Roseboro was involved in gang activity, police and family members said. The cousins were getting together to record music on the night they were killed, and Roseboro had gone outdoors to walk Chambers inside his home.

Chambers was an aspiring rapper and Roseboro an aspiring music producer, family members said.
