Teen Gang Banger Donald Ray Dokins Arrested for Shooting of 2-Year-old Angel Cortez Nava

| by

The Los Angeles Police have made an arrest in the gang related slaying of a 14-month-old boy near the South LA neighborhood of Watts last month.

Donald Ray Dokins, an alleged member of the Fudgetown Mafia Crips, stands accused of firing the shot that took young Angel Cortez Nava’s life on June 4th, according to the LA Times.

Police believe that Dokins fired on Angel’s father, Mauro Cortez, because the leader Cortez was wearing a purple shirt. Purple is the color of Fudgetown Mafia’s rival gang, the Barrio Grape Street. The two gangs have been warring in the area of the shooting for almost six months.

Dokins is only 15 years old. He is a known associate of the T. Funk Ridas clique within the Fudgetown Mafia Crips and is a suspect in several other murders.
