Few Clues in Double Homicide

Los Angeles: Two men were shot and killed on the sidewalk, in the early morning hours of Sunday.

On Sunday, June 15, 2009, at around 3:00 a.m., Felipe Villarreal, 42-years of age, and Rafael Padilla, 57-years of age, were found shot to death on the sidewalk in front of a bar in the 3400 block of East 1st Street.  Earlier the two had been inside the bar, drinking and playing pool.  After the bar closed Padilla and Villareal walked outside where they were seen talking as the bartender left, shortly after 2:00 a.m.  

At about 3:00 a.m. a person at a nearby location heard several gunshots.  When the individual looked outside their window they could see two victim’s down on the sidewalk and immediately called 911.

Detectives have few leads and are asking for the public’s help to solve this crime.  The motive is still under investigation, but Detectives are looking into the possibility that robbery was involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hollenbeck Homicide Detective Araceli Negrete at 323-526-3679.  After hours or on weekends, calls may directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with the letters LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website www.lapdonline.org.  All tips will remain anonymous.
