HAWTHORNE (CBSLA) — The family of a man killed in a drive-by shooting in Hawthorne is pleading for help to find his killer.
Police say a group of men were standing at the corner of Prairie Avenue and 130th Street when someone opened fire around 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
Tyrone Tucker, Jr., 32, was shot, and was rushed to a hospital where he later died.
During a vigil for Tucker, his family made a plea for tips. His wife spoke directly to the killer:
“Turn yourself in. You took somebody’s father away and a good man,” said the woman who was only identified as “Candi.” “Do the right thing. He didn’t deserve this.”
Tucker leaves behind a 4-year-old daughter.
