A South Los Angeles youth was fatally wounded in a burst of gunfire that broke out when he drove through a South Los Angeles neighborhood wearing clothing in colors associated with a youth gang. Detective Verne King said Harmon Tramble, 18, who sometimes associated with gang members, was driving in the vicinity of 112th Street and Broadway in an open-top automobile when a pickup truck pulled alongside and a passenger opened fire after shouting a gang slogan. Tremble was hit but the two passengers in his vehicle escaped injury and one of them, a 16-year-old boy, drove the victim to Los Angeles County-Martin Luther King Jr. Drew Medical Center, where he died.
