Portrait of Andre Diaz murder victim. Photograph dated October 5, 1942. Accompanying newspaper article reads, "Two men were viciously assaulted and robbed early today by so-called 'Panchecos' - Mexican youths wearing flashy 'zoot suits' - in a bloody climax to a week-end of renewed youthful gang violence that left one youth dead -- killed with a 2 by 4 club during a flight that involved members of the Channing Street and Mateo street gangs."
