Reginald Leroy King was walking through the parking lot of the Pine Ridge Apartments in the 5700 block of Thousand Oaks Circle when, police say, he and the person with him were surrounded by a half-dozen men.
"One suspect pointed his gun at King and demanded his car keys," police said. "As King tried to slap the gun out of the suspect's hand, the suspect struck King in the face with his fist. King and the witness then fled in separate directions. The suspects followed King and then shot him."
The suspects were described only as black males.
