This location is between Burlington Street and Bonnie Brae. Saucedo, who was walking toward a taco truck for some dinner when he was attacked by drive-by shooters. He ran toward a nearby liquor store for help, but collapsed outside and died. Four Latinos in a small black car are the suspects. Saucedo was not a documented gang member, but LAPD Rampart detectives think his assailants probably were.
