The teenager killed in a shooting in Harbor City on Monday evening has been identified, Los Angeles Police Department officials said Tuesday.
Corey Daily, 16, was shot while standing with a group of friends inside the courtyard of an apartment complex in the 1500 block of West Anaheim Street, LAPD said.
The shooting happened at around 5:50 p.m., police said, and he was struck several times by multiple rounds fired in his direction.
Daily fell to the ground upon being shot and later died from his injuries at a local hospital, police said.
The night of the shooting, a witness who lives nearby told KTLA he saw the teen’s family members crying near the scene of the fatal shooting.
“The way they were screaming — the mom, the sisters, the friends — they were crying,” said Javier Sanchez. “It was sad. The mom was in the middle of the street. She didn’t care if cars were coming.”
