Unprovoked Shooting Leaves One Dead


Los Angeles: Hollenbeck Homicide Detectives are investigating the shooting death of 46 year-old Marvino Davis, a resident of Los Angeles.

On June 26, 2003, at approximately 5:55 p.m., Davis was walking on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of Spence Street. A two door, 1990 Honda Accord with two male Hispanic occupants stopped in front of Davis. One of the suspects got out of the car, walked up to Davis and shot him several times.
