61-Year-Old Korean Man Shot Dead by Black Assailant in Koreatown

December 14, 2022

KOREATOWN, Los Angeles—A 61-year-old Korean man was shot and killed in front of his home in broad daylight last weekend in Koreatown, Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Police Department was dispatched after receiving a report of a collapsed person near 5th Street and Commonwealth Avenue at around 11:42 a.m. on December 10.

The victim was already deceased when responding officers arrived, according to The JoongAng.

The victim was only identified by his last name, Ahn. He had an appointment near the scene of the incident. Apparently, he parked his car and sat down near the sidewalk.

At that moment, an African-American male passed by Ahn, came back after a few minutes, and shot him in the back.

CCTV footage captured the African-American male returning to the scene about 10 minutes later to steal Ahn’s wallet and walked away without a care in the world.

Sarah Aldarani of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office confirmed “Ahn was fatally wounded by gunfire.”

The LAPD arrested an African-American male suspect on December 11 and is currently investigating the motive of the crime.

No further detail is available. Local media outlets are not reporting on the murder, other than JoongAng News.
