19-Year Old Shot and Killed

Los Angeles: Rampart Homicide Detectives are investigating the murder of David Enrique DeLeon, age 18.

On August 8, 2008, at around 3:20 AM, patrol officers responded to a shooting call in the area of Lake Street and Beverly Boulevard. Upon arrival, the officers saw a black, four-door BMW that had collided with a business on the south curb of Beverly Boulevard. DeLeon was found seated in the driver seat, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later.

The investigation revealed that DeLeon and his passengers were travelling southbound on Lake Street and had stopped at the intersection at Beverly Boulevard behind a green or grey mini-van. As DeLeon waited to make a westbound turn onto Beverly Boulevard, the right front passenger of the mini-van began to fire multiple rounds. Several rounds struck the car and DeLeon.

Wounded by the gunfire, Deleon lost control of his car and rolled through the intersection and crashed into a business building on the south side of the street. The suspects’ then drove off westbound on Beverly Boulevard.

The shooter was described as a male Hispanic, 19-25 years of age, approximately 150 pounds with a shaved head. He has a medium complexion, and was wearing a white athletic type shirt.

The mini-van was a late 1990’s or early 2000 model.

Anyone with information is asked to call Rampart Homicide Detectives, J. Pere or G. Lee at 213-484-3650. On weekends or after hours, call the toll free 24-hour anonymous number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
