LAPD is Looking for Answers in a Silver Lake Homicide NR11377cj

UPDATE
August 30, 2011

Los Angeles: Today Council Member LaBonge and the LAPD held a press conference to announce the arrest of a suspect involved in the murder of a Silver Lake pizza delivery man.

On August 26, 2011, Detective Carrillo identified the suspect in this shooting as 18-year-old Jose Beltran, a male Hispanic.  Beltran had been arrested on August 19, 2011, for an unrelated gun charge in LAPD’s Rampart area.  Beltran remains in the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriffs.  On August 29, 2011, Detective Carrillo presented this case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, who after careful review filed one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder on Beltran.

Despite the fact that Beltran has been identified, anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Detectives J. Carrillo or L. Burcher 213-847-4261.   During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (1-800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
