A Violent Weekend Leaves Three Dead

Los Angeles: Three men died over the weekend in three apparent separate gang related shootings.

The first call came in Saturday, March 31, 2007, at about 11:20 P.M., Kurtis Livingston, 19, was walking in the 1900 block of West Jefferson Boulevard. An unidentified suspect driving a light color vehicle stopped alongside Livingston. The suspect fired multiple rounds fatally striking Livingston.

The second murder occurred Sunday, April 1, around 1:00 A.M., when Luis Romo, 21, was walking in the alley near Soto Street and Boulder Street. An unknown suspect driving a silver or gray sports utility truck approached Romo and shot him in the chest. Romo ran away and jumped a chain link fence, where he collapsed and died in the front yard of a nearby house.

The final homicide of the weekend occurred on Sunday, April 1, 2007, at about 2:15 A.M., when Anthony Preston Jones, 38, was standing in the alley near the 4400 block of Santo Tomas Drive. Jones was confronted by a male Black suspect. The suspect fired multiple rounds, fatally striking Jones. The suspect left the area in a late model Toyota.

Detectives are asking for the public's help in solving these murders.
