Los Angeles: On Friday December 5, 2003 at about 8:45 p.m., 32 year-old Michael Lester Bell and two other individuals, a 22 year-old male Hispanic and a 25 year-old female Hispanic were crossing the street at the intersection of 82nd Street and Figueroa Street. Unidentified suspect(s) shot at them from their vehicle, a 1990's black, 2-door Chevrolet Camaro or Pontiac Firebird Convertible, that was making a right turn off 82nd Street at Figueroa Street. Mr. Bell sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his lower torso, while the 22 year-old male Hispanic sustained a graze wound to his left shoulder and the 25 year-old female sustained multiple gunshot wounds to her left leg.
