Local College Basketball Player"

Los Angeles – On Sunday, December 10, 2000, at approximately 12:15 a.m., 19 year-old Kevin Marlo Bogle, and 18 year-old Terrence Lawson were stopped at a red light southbound on Crenshaw Boulevard at Stocker Street in a white 1991 Chevrolet Berretta. Unfortunately, an unknown suspect in an unidentified car drove up next to the Chevrolet Berretta and began shooting into the vehicle with a 9mm handgun. Bogle and Lawson were shot several times in the upper body. Bogle attempted to drive away but only managed to drive a few blocks away to the 4600 block of Crenshaw Boulevard before resting at the curb.
