A story for every victim

Victor Daniel Terrazas, 28

Victor Daniel Terrazas, a 28-year-old Latino, was fatally shot and  wounded by deputies on Wednesday, March 25, in the 10200 block of South Vermont Avenue in Westmont, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 1:15 a.m., Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to the 1000 block of West 105th Street and found Lakeisha Glendora Lynall, 32, in the alley, with a gunshot wound, according to a news release from the department. Lynall was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies put a suspect description out on the radio and about 20 minutes later, found a man matching the description in an alley near the 10200 block of South Vermont Avenue, Lt. Victor Lewandowski said. The man, later identified as Terrazas, fired at deputies, who returned fire, Lewandowski said.

Terrazas was pronounced dead at 1:50 a.m. at the scene, Winter said.

Deputies recovered a shotgun, which is believed to have been the weapon used to kill Lynall. 

Lewandowski said that Lynall and Terrazas had been in a relationship for about four years, but did not have any children.

“There was a conversation before the shooting, but we don’t know what that was,” Lewandowski said. “We don’t know what sparked the violence.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
