A story for every victim

Urban Titus Todd, 41

Urban Titus Todd, a 41-year-old black man, died Friday, June 30, after being shot in the 1100 block of West 104th Street in the Westmont area of South Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Todd was riding his bicycle near his home around 11:25 p.m. June 23 when he was confronted by a black man who asked where he was from, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Guillermo Morales said. 

Witnesses say Todd tried to get away, but the other man shot him multiple times, Morales said. 

Todd was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead seven days later at 4:55 p.m., according to coroner’s records. 

The gunman was last seen running in an unknown direction, Sgt. Steve Rubino said. 

Investigators think the gunman may have been involved in a gang. Todd had past gang affiliations but wasn’t actively involved in gang behavior when he was shot, Morales said.

Authorities are seeking potential witnesses, Morales said. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
