It was about 10:35 a.m. yesterday when Jeremy Burrell was approached by several male black suspects while walking on a sidewalk in the Hyde Park neighborhood in South LA. "More than one suspect drew a handgun and began firing at Burrell," said the LAPD. "Burrell was hit multiple times and transported to a local hospital for treatment. He was pronounced dead a short time later." The suspects got away in a van and police are calling it a gang-related shooting. Detectives are asking for anyone with information about this incident, which took place on the 3400 block of West 63rd Street, to call the detectives at (213) 485-1383.
