Multiple Shooting in Hyde Park, One Dead

Los Angeles:  Last night, August 24, two men were shot, and one killed after unknown suspects approached them in front of an apartment complex in the 6300 block of South 10th Avenue.

The shooting occurred around 9:05 PM, when 21-year-old Nahum Beaird was shot in the head.  Another man, 31, who was standing with Beaird, was also shot.  Beaird died, and his companion is listed in stable condition at a local hospital.

The police investigation was complicated by a lack of information and interference from a large crowd that gathered at the crime scene.  The only suspect description police received was a "dark colored" vehicle, which was described as leaving the location after the shooting.  The shooting was gang related.

Police officers arrived within two minutes of the 9-1-1 call to dispatch and reported Beaird was shot in the head.  With the ambulance on the way, officers made three requests for additional units to help secure the crime scene and quell a growing group disturbance.  Ultimately, order was restored 21 minutes later, but only after three, separate requests for additional officers and the arrival of 29 police units. 

One man was temporarily detained and later released from 77th Police Station.  Another person, Patrick Evans, 21, was arrested for interfering with police and fire officials.  He was booked at 77th Street Jail, and his bail was set at $10,000, which included a $2,500 vandalism warrant.

Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call 77th Street Homicide Detectives at 213-485-1385.  On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
