One Killed and Another Injured in Gang-Related Shooting

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police are investigating a gang shooting that left one man dead and another injured on Saturday, December 27, 2008 in South Los Angeles.

At around 4:30 p.m., Travion Collins, 21, and his companion were standing in front of a business located in the 2700 block of West 27th Street when a suspect walked around the corner of a nearby strip mall, pulled out a handgun and shot at them.  Collins was shot in the chest and his companion was shot in the leg.  The suspect ran from the scene.    

Paramedics transported both victims to a local hospital where Collins later died of his injuries.  The other victim was treated for his gunshot wound and later released.

The shooting incident is still under investigation and the motive is unknown.

Detectives described the suspect as a male Black in his late teens or early 20s.  He was about 5 feet 9 inches tall.   

South Bureau homicide detectives ask that any witnesses or others with information about the incident contact Detectives Sean Hansen and Chuck Geiger at 213-485-1383.  After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “CRIMES” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web Tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  All calls and contacts are anonymous.
