Bobby Jones, L.A. Homicide No. 50: Man Fatally Shot in Chest After Fight
The street where Bobby Jones was killed
On March 4, Bobby Jones died of a gunshot wound in the 4100 block of Palmwood Drive in Crenshaw. The 28-year-old black man got into an argument with the alleged shooter in the street of a residential neighborhood.
Jones was then shot in the chest, according to coroner's records.
The Los Angeles Times reported that he was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds around 4:30 p.m.
The location of the shooting is a block away from Santa Barbara Plaza Shopping Center and half a mile from Rancho Cienega Sports Center.
The LAPD Criminal Gang Homicide handled the case, so it can be assumed that the shooting was gang-related.
Note: Due to technical difficulties, the LA Weekly's archive of all homicides within Los Angeles city limits was discontinued near the end of last year. We will be rolling out the 2011 homicides, one by one, until our "Murder was the Case" archive is up to date. Thanks for your patience.
