Car to Car Shooting Leaves One Dead, One Injured

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police detectives are asking for the public's help to locate any witnesses of a car to car shooting that occurred early Saturday.

On August 26, 2006, at about 12:20 a.m., 18 year-old Edy Palomino, and his friend were driving westbound on Vernon Avenue from Hoover Street. Suspects in a dark colored vehicle, drove parallel to Palomino and fired multiple rounds into the car. Both Mr. Palomino and his friend were struck by the gunfire, causing Palomino's car to crash with another vehicle that was travelling eastbound in the #1 lane of Vernon Avenue.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded to the scene and provided medical treatment to Mr. Palomino. Mr. Palomino failed to respond to the medical treatment and died of his injuries. The second person in the car was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries. He is listed in stable condition.

The motive appears to be gang related.

Suspects are described as two male Blacks.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Southwest Homicide Detectives at 213-485-2417, during normal business hours. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).

The identities of callers wishing to remain anonymous shall be protected.
