On 6/19/16, at 19:19 hours, officers were dispatched to 1700 S. Evergreen regarding a shooting with a male victim down. Upon arrival, officers found the victim, Eliu Armando Gramajo (52 years old), suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso. Medics arrived and transported Gramajo to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene. The initial investigation indicates that Gramajo was not the intended target of the shooting and was most likely a victim of gang rivalry. Gramajo operates and/or owns a food truck in the area where the shooting occurred and was working when he was shot and killed. Fresh gang graffiti was found in the area; however, Gramajo is not a gang member. Homicide detectives are seeking information on this shooting. To provide information regarding this homicide, please call (714) 245-8390.
