Timothy Crawford, 32, a black man, was shot at the intersection of McKinley Avenue and Alondra Boulevard in Compton at about 6:03 p.m. Dec. 28. Crawford and a friend were driving away from a liquor store, said Lt. Gil Carrillo of Sheriff's Homicide Bureau. Crawford was in the passenger seat. They stopped at a stop sign, about to turn. A black man or youth standing on the curb, and "for unknown reasons" fired a gun into the car. Crawford was wounded; the driver was not injured and drove him to his house, which was only a block away, and paramedics came there, and took him to a hospital, where he died shortly after, at 8:08 p.m.
