LOS ANGELES – A man was shot to death Friday evening in the unincorporated area of Florence-Firestone west of South Gate.
The shooting was reported at approximately 8:14 p.m. and deputies responded to the 1500 block of East 88th Street, west of Compton Avenue, where they found the victim, the Sheriff’s Information Bureau reported.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Anyone with any information on this shooting was asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anonymous calls can be made to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or sent to lacrimesstoppers.org.
How come every time someone gets shot in the Florence-Graham area, they have to write “Man shot near South Gate”. Why not just put “Man shot in unincorporated Florence-Firestone”? South Gate always gets a bad wrap for shootings that didn’t even happen in their city.
Because it provides a geographic location to the area. Unincorporated LA County could be anywhere.
