A 20-year-old man was found dead inside a vehicle on June 27 in the Wilshire Division in what detectives believe may have been a gang-related homicide.
Police received an anonymous call about a possible dead body inside a vehicle near South Dunsmuir Avenue and 20th Street and sent a patrol car to investigate, said Detective Sean Kinchla, with the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Bureau Homicide Unit. Officers found the male victim at approximately 5:55 a.m. The body was seated in the front passenger seat of the vehicle, Kinchla said.
“This is another one our detectives don’t have much on,” he added.
The Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner identified the victim as Jaisen Grant Greene. The cause of death was determined to be homicide.
No one reported hearing gunshots in the area prior to the shooting and nobody else was inside or near the vehicle, Kinchla said. Details including who owns the vehicle, exactly when the crime occurred and what type of weapon was involved are all under investigation, police said. No further information was provided.
Detectives are searching for witnesses and others with information about the murder. Anyone with information is urged to call the LAPD’s West Bureau Homicide at (213)382-9470.
