(FOX 11) - Keyona Turner, 16, was shot to death May 1, 2011 as she sat in a friend's car in front her family's home on East 49th Street near Hooper Avenue.
At about 4:20 a.m. on that Sunday morning, someone in a large pick-up truck going north on Hooper fired several apparently random shots down 49th Street.
One of those rounds pierced a window of the car Keyona was seated in and struck her. The teenager died of her wound three days later.
It is unclear if the shooter was a passenger or the driver of the pick-up. It is possible that the person who murdered Keyona is not aware that his shots actually hit anyone.
There may be a reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of her killer. Contact Officer Leonardo McKenzie at LAPD's Newton Division at (323) 846-6556.

Thoughts? Even though the shooter may not have initially known his bullets killed Keyona, word would have eventually gotten around of her death and he would just have to place himself at the street. He or anyone else in that pickup truck needs to take responsibility for the sake of Keyona's family and admit to what happened that night.
This is what happens way too often. Not that any murder is justified but it's always a gang banger that's targeted and always a completely innocent bystanders that is killed. They need to get this thug off the street before he harms anyone else.
