A story for every victim

Trevor Andre Williams, 33

Trevor Andre Williams, a 33-year-old black man, was shot and killed Friday, June 13, near South Figueroa Street and West Manchester Avenue in Vermont Knolls, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Williams is believed to have shot about 10 times at the occupants of a silver Toyota Camry about 10 p.m., killing Jacinta Walker, 18, and Aveion Bolden, 20, said Los Angeles police Det. Dave Garrido.

A person inside the Camry returned fire at Williams, who was in the passenger seat of a red Nissan Altima.

The driver of the Nissan took Williams to a nearby fire station, at South Main Street and East 108th Street. Williams was found dead inside the car. The driver fled.

Anthony Alonzo Cudger, 25, was arrested June 14 on suspicion of killing Williams, but he released June 17. 

Prosecutors declined to file charges because the investigation found that Cudger acted in self-defense, said Greg Risling, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney.

The shooting was the latest in an ongoing feud between two street gangs – the Main Street Crips and the Hoover Crips, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Criminal Gang Homicide Division at (213) 485-1383. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
