Victor De Los Santos, a 19-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Saturday, June 5, in the 3300 block of Verdugo Road in Glassell Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Police responded to reports that shots had been fired early Saturday morning and found De Los Santos suffering from several gunshot wounds, said LAPD Northeast Det. TJ Morris.
