Suspected gang member fatally shot in Chinese restaurant
Jamurl Scott, an alleged member of the Franklin Square Crips, was booked Tuesday in the killing of Louis Smith.
Smith, 33, was shot Jan. 3 about 3:50 p.m. in the 1500 block of East 103rd Street in Watts. He died of his wounds a day later.
Smith was waiting for food with a woman and child when Scott approached him and they "exchanged gang slogans," said Det. Sal LaBarbera of the Los Angeles Police Department.
The two began fighting and Scott, also known as J Mac, left and returned with a gun, shooting Smith several times.
Scott was being held in lieu of $2.015-million bail.
