Gang Shooting Claims Life of Los Angeles Man

Los Angeles: Hollenbeck Homicide Detectives are investigating the shooting death of a man who died in his car after being shot by gang members Tuesday.

On April 11, 2006, around 2:45 p.m., the victim and a male passenger were traveling in the victim’s Ford Expedition, westbound on Atlantic Street approaching Grande Vista, in Boyle Heights. Two male Hispanic gang members in an unknown vehicle approached the victim’s car while traveling in the same direction. One occupant in the suspect vehicle fired into the victim’s car, striking the driver multiple times in the face and upper torso. The front passenger of the victim’s car exited the vehicle and fled through an alley north of Atlantic Street. He was struck in the buttocks area by gunfire.

After being shot, the driver of the Expedition continued westbound on Atlantic Street but lost control, jumping the southwest curb and colliding with vehicles in a parking lot on the southwest corner of Grande Vista and Atlantic Street.

Paramedics responded to the location and pronounced the driver of the Expedition dead at the scene. The second victim was taken to a local hospital where he is listed in stable condition.

The cause of death for the decedent was determined by the coroner to be multiple gunshots to the face and upper torso.

The public’s help is requested in solving this murder. Anyone with information is asked to call Hollenbeck Homicide Detective Smith or Espinoza at 323-526-3679, during normal business hours. During off hours and on weekends, contact the Hollenbeck Watch Commander at 323-266-5964.
