July 6, 2009 |  4:23 pm

Trayvon Earl Jeffers, a 28-year-old black man, was shot several times in the 100 block of Puddingstone Drive in Frank G. Bonelli Park in San Dimas. He died on Saturday, June 6, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Jeffers got into an argument with a group of men at the boat launch in the park, and he was found with several gunshot wounds on the north shore of the picnic area, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

He was shot about 6:20 p.m. and pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital at 7:04 p.m., said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.
