Shooting Kills Two and Injures Three

Los Angeles: A gunman shot and killed two people as they sat in their car Sunday night, and shot and wounded three others who were sitting on a nearby porch.

On April 27, 2008, at about 10:45 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department officers responded to a “shots fired” radio call at 48th Street and Wall Street. When the officers arrived at the location they found three female victims suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Officers were directed to a car parked at the curb a short distance away. There they discovered two additional gunshot victims inside. Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics pronounced Brenda Aguilera, 21-years of age, dead at the scene. Jonathan Plascencia, 20-years-old, was transported to a local hospital where he died a short time later.

Detectives believe that the shooter walked up to the car that Aguilera and Plascencia were seated in and shot both of them. As the suspect was running from the scene he began firing rounds at the three victims sitting nearby. Witnesses told police that the suspect, described only as a male Hispanic, left the area in a green van.

It is unknown if the shooting was gang related, and there is no known motive at this time.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Newton Area Detectives Julio Benavides or Johnny Villa at 323-846-5363. On weekends, holidays, and after hours, please call the toll free, 24-hour detective desk, at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
