Mulindwa Traylor, a 24-year-old black man, was shot and killed Tuesday, Nov. 10, in the 1500 block of West 55th Street in Harvard Park, authorities said.

Los Angeles Police Det. Carlos Velasquez said Traylor was a documented member of the 55 Neighborhoods gang who was driving about 1:45 a.m. when he thought he saw a friend.

Velasquez said police determined that at that time, Traylor got out of his car and walked up to the man, a male black, and realized he was actually a rival gang member.

The shooter, a documented member of the 107 Hoovers, asked Traylor where he was from and shot him several times, Velasquez said. The man was arrested over the weekend, and Velasquez said he will be charged by Tuesday morning.

Velasquez declined to identify the suspect until charges are filed.
