Gunshots rang out at about 11 p.m. near the intersection of Braddock Drive and Slauson Avenue, police said. Two wounded men were found minutes away, in front of the Mar Vista Gardens housing projects.

Calvin Johnson, a Paramount resident, was killed in the shooting, according to the LA County Coroner's Office. Another man was recovering in a hospital, police said.
