[Police gave the location of the incident as shot in the 1700 block of West 60th Street, about a block away from the location the coroner's office listed.]
Neighborhood residents discovered Grady lying in the street about 6 a.m. after hearing gunshots and following the direction they came from, police said.
Grady was discovered with bullet wounds to his upper torso, according to Officer Cleon Joseph, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman. Joseph said the victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died a short time later.
Investigators consider the incident to be a gang-related shooting, police said.
It was not clear what led to the shooting or why investigators believe it was gang-related. Joseph said he did not know whether the group of people who found Grady had also seen the shooter, but he said police had no description of a suspect.
