INGLEWOOD (CNS) - A man shot multiple times in Inglewood Saturday was publicly identified today by the coroner's office.

The man was identified as Kevin L. Kilgore, 31, of Hawthorne, said Assistant Coroner Chief Ed Winter.

Kilgore was found at 2 a.m. Saturday in the 400 block of South Fir Avenue. He has been brought there from another location, said Inglewood police Sgt. Francisco Ruiz said.

He was pronounced dead at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center at 4 a.m. Saturday.

Ruiz said at first police believes the shooting was related to an earlier shots-fired call from the rear of the Market Street Bar and Grill, in the 300 block of South Market Avenue in Inglewood.

Witnesses from that shooting described a red pickup truck as possibly involved, Ruiz said.

Police found the truck and followed it, Ruiz said. As they did, a handgun was thrown from the passenger window, he said.

Another gun was recovered from inside the truck after it was stopped and searched, Ruiz said.

Although both occupants were taken into custody, they were held on charges that were not related to Kilgore's death. No suspects are in custody on the Kilgore homicide, a watch commander said.
