Man Arrested for Killing Girlfriend

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police have arrested a 25-year-old gang member who allegedly killed his 18-year-old girlfriend on August 23, 2008, in Boyle Heights.

Around 6:50 p.m., a man called 911 to report a suicide in the 2000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.

When police arrived at the scene, paramedics were attempting to revive a young woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

The victim identified as Gabriela Rodas and her boyfriend Moises Enrique Martinez, were involved in a heated argument. The dispute escalated when Martinez pulled out a handgun and shot the woman in the back of the head, authorities said.

The victim was taken to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center where she died an hour later.

Martinez was charged with murder and is being held without bail.

Based on early investigative leads, the couple had been involved in a volatile relationship for the past three years.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hollenbeck homicide Detectives Ron Chavarria or Scott Smith at 323- 526-3680. On weekends or during off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
