Latasha Harlins

First Name Latasha
Born on July 14, 1975
Died on March 16, 1991 (aged 15)

Latasha Harlins was an African-American girl who was fatally shot at age 15 by Soon Ja Du, a 51-year-old Korean-American convenience store owner. Du was tried and convicted of voluntary manslaughter over the killing of Harlins, based in part on security camera footage. The judge sentenced Du to 10 years in state prison but the sentence was suspended and the defendant was instead placed on five years' probation with 400 hours of community service, a $500 restitution, and funeral expenses. The sentencing was widely regarded as an extremely light sentence, and a failed appeal contributed to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, especially the targeting of Koreatown, Los Angeles. The killing of Harlins came 13 days after the videotaped beating of Rodney King.
