What to Know

  • The victim was identified as Glenn Mitchell, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
  • The shooting occurred about 6:25 p.m. Thursday in the area of 103rd and Main streets.
  • The funeral procession was not in the area when the shooting occurred, police said.

Coroner's officials Sunday released the name of a 55-year-old Los Angeles resident who was killed in a shooting in the Broadway-Manchester area, near the route where thousands had earlier lined streets for the funeral procession of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle.

The victim was identified as Glenn Mitchell, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

The shooting occurred about 6:25 p.m. Thursday in the area of 103rd and Main streets, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Jeff Lee.

Mitchell and three other shooting victims were taken to a hospital, Lee said. The extent of the wounded victims' injuries were not immediately available.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore had tweeted that the victims were three men and one woman between 30 and 50 years old and that one of them had died.

"In the midst of this procession we have a multi-4 Shooting at 103 St and Main St.," he tweeted, adding, "Suspects in a gray Hyundai opened fire on the victims."

"We must stop this senseless violence," Moore tweeted.

Although the procession had passed near the shooting scene, it was not in the area when the shooting occurred, police said.

Last week, 29-year-old Eric Ronald Holder Jr., an aspiring rapper and acquaintance of Hussle, pleaded not guilty to one count each of murder and possession of a firearm by a felon, along with two counts of attempted murder.
