On Saturday night, 48-year-old Derrick Hill was celebrating a relative’s birthday party when he was fatally shot by who police suspect is his own brother.
“I lost one of my babies,” said Doris Hill, the victim’s mother. “Something I never wanted to do.”
The shooting occurred in front of a home in the 800 block of East 78th Street around 9 p.m.
Firefighters found Hill suffering from a gunshot wound and took him to a nearby hospital where he later died from his injuries, LAPD Lt. Jeff Nolte said. The victim was shot near his home, officials said.
