Robert J. Lopez (Los Angeles Times) | April 28, 2011

A man was shot to death in Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw on Thursday evening during a possible gang-related argument, police said.

Two men began arguing about 5:30 p.m. in 3500 block of Coco Avenue when one of them pulled out a handgun and fired multiple rounds, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The victim was struck in the chest and taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, LAPD Officer Gregory Baek told The Times.

The victim’s name and age were not released. Police on Thursday night were looking for the gunman.

At least 63 homicides have been reported within two miles of the kil#i*gg scene since January 2007, according to a Times Homicide Report database.

Anyone with information in Thursday’s slaying is asked to call (877) 527-3247.
