Selene Patricia Mayoral, a 24-year-old Latina, was fatally shot Thursday, Sept. 6, in the 4100 block of Alma Avenue in Lynwood, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.
Lt. Holly Francisco of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Mayoral was shot about 11:15 p.m. when a deputy sheriff tried to stop a car. The deputy saw a flash and heard a gunshot coming from the vehicle, which then bolted from the scene and sped off, she said.
With several deputies eventually in pursuit, the car slowed at one point and the driver pushed Mayoral's body out of the car and onto the road at Josephine Street and Harris Avenue in Lynwood, Francisco said.
A few deputies left the chase to attend to Mayoral, who was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound to the torso.
