LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - Police are searching for a killer after a man was fatally shot at a market in South Los Angeles early Monday morning, said officials.
The shooting happened around 1:00 a.m. at the Happy Shoppers Market near the intersection of Florence and Vermont avenues.
The victim was 18-years-old, according to his grandfather who spoke exclusively with FOX 11. He was set to turn 19-years-old later this summer on August 15.
"It not only hurt me...they hurt their mother and father and the rest of the community too. I wish it would stop...it just doesn't make any sense," said the victim's grandfather about the suspect who remains on the loose.
The victim's name was not immediately released by authorities.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles Police Department at 877-LAPD-247.
