Gang Member, 22, Shot During Attempted Robbery

A 22-year-old man was killed when he tried to rob a man who was armed and shot him in Boyle Heights Sunday, police said.

The shooting occurred just before 3 a.m. on Lorena Street near 6th Street, said Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s media relations section.

Fernando Sedano, described as a member of the “White Fence” gang, and a fellow gang member were driving down Lorena Street with Sedano’s girlfriend and another passenger in the back seat. Police said Sedano stopped the car and, with the other gang member, apparently tried to rob a man walking down the street, police said.

The intended robbery victim pulled out a gun, and as the two struggled for the weapon, shot Sedano in the chest.

Sedano was taken to White Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
