UPDATE: 11/16/2016 It appears he was shot by gang members.

"Two alleged gang members were charged Tuesday with the murder of a 19-year-old Marine from Camp Pendleton, who was found shot inside his vehicle in South Los Angeles nearly two months ago.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gustavo N. Sztraicher ordered Oscar Aguilar, 26, to remain jailed in lieu of $4.2 million bail, and co-defendant Esau Rios, 28, to be held on $3 million bail while awaiting arraignment Nov. 30 in connection with the Sept. 16 shooting of Lance Cpl. Carlos Segovia-Lopez.

The criminal complaint alleges that Aguilar personally and intentionally discharged a handgun, and that the killing was committed in association with or for the benefit of a criminal street gang.

Aguilar — who allegedly has a string of prior convictions — is additionally charged with one count each of possession of a firearm by a felon and dissuading a witness by force or threat.

Segovia-Lopez was on leave from Camp Pendleton in San Diego County when he allegedly exchanged words with the defendants on Sept. 16, according to Los Angeles County prosecutors.

He was found shortly after 11:30 that night, covered in blood and slumped over the steering wheel of a Dodge Charger in the 2100 block of 31st Street. He was taken off life support three days later after doctors informed the family that he could not be saved."

Previously there was a different photo posted above. It came from newspaper articles about Carlos Seogiva Lopez identifying that photo as him. I thought it looked a little different but major newspapers had posted it so I trusted them. That was not Carlos. I have changed the photo.

Per his Facebook page he was born in San Miguel, El Salvador.  He attended James A. Foshay Learning Center K-12 and Foshay High School both in Los Angeles. He volunteered with USC Troy Camp for kids who released this statement. He was originally a young camper with USC Troy Camp. When he was older he volunteered at the camp. Another fundraiser is here. His nickname was "Hedgehog." Carlos used to stay with LA Cloud9 Teen President Claudia Perez when he was in LA. She is updating her page with news about Carlos. Here is a video with Carlos' LA Cloud9 Teen volunteer program. They rap about helping the homeless. Carlos is on the right. Here is a video of Carlos telling kids not to drop out of school.

His mother is Sandra Lopez born in El Salvador. Carlos and his mother are both US citizens. His mother started a GoFundMe here The military should be taking care of his funeral expenses. His father is most likely Martin Segovia Coto who still lives in El Salvador. He has a sister named Cindy Reyes.

The LA Times have added him to the homocide report. Below are some photos and more information.
