Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating the gunman who fatally shot a 15-year-old girl as she waited with her mother outside a hamburger stand in South Los Angeles.
The girl was identified Sunday as Hannah Bell, said Officer Mike Lopez of the LAPD’s Media Relations Section.
The shooting occurred around 9 p.m. Friday at a Best Burger hamburger stand near 77th Street and Western Avenue, Lopez said.
Bell was taken to a hospital and police told reporters that she later died, he said.
A male suspect wearing a black hoodie was last seen leaving the location on foot, southbound on Western, Lopez said.
Police said they did not have a motive for the killing.
A vigil for the little girl was scheduled by Project Islamic Hopeactivist Najee Ali for 5 p.m. Sunday at the shooting scene. Anyone with information regarding the shooting was asked to call the LAPD’s 77th Street station at (323) 786-5077.
