Claudia Marroquin, a 23-year-old white woman, was shot and killed Sunday, Nov. 1, in the 400 block of Edgewood Street in Inglewood, authorities said.

Marroquin and Antonio Tavarez, a 25-year-old Latino, were standing with a small group of people outside a home when shots were fired from a passing car, said Inglewood Police Sgt. Mike Bolliger. Tavarez was struck in the head, and Marroquin was hit in the chest.

Bolliger said the suspect or suspects fired randomly into the group. The victims were taken to separate local hospitals, where they died.

Bolliger said detectives believe the shooting was gang-related. He asked that anyone with information about the killings call the department’s homicide detectives at (310) 412-5246.
