Pacoima Man Killed in Gang-Related Shooting

Los Angeles: A gang-related shooting claimed the life of a 22-year-old man this morning at his home in Pacoima.

At around 2 a.m., Foothill Area officers responded to calls about a possible shooting in the 12500 block of Correnti Street.  Upon arrival the officers found Abraham Guerrero lying in the street suffering from a gunshot wound.  

Based on preliminary information, detectives believe that Guerrero had been standing in front of his residence talking to a group of friends when an unidentified white vehicle approached in a westerly direction.  It is believed that Guerrero and his friends exchanged words with one or more occupants in the white car.  An occupant of the car produced a handgun and fired several shots, striking Guerrero in the stomach.  The suspects were last seen driving from the scene in the white vehicle.  Paramedics pronounced Guerrero dead at scene.

There is no clear motive for the shooting.  Guerrero had no apparent gang affiliation, but detectives suspect that the suspects in the white car are gang members.  

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or may have information regarding it, is asked to contact Foothill Homicide Detectives Joshua Byers and Efren Gutierrez at 818-834-3115.  After hours or on weekends, calls may be 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.  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
