Devonshire Detectives Investigate Homicide

 

Devonshire: On Saturday, September 8, 2001, at approximately 11:00 P.M., a verbal confrontation relative to gang affiliation occurred between two groups of individuals inside the Ralph supermarket, located at 16940 Devonshire Street, in Granada Hills. As four members of one group were preparing to leave the market's parking lot in a vehicle, a member of the confronting group approached the car and fired several rounds from a handgun, striking one victim several times in the upper torso.

The shooter and his accomplices ran from the location immediately after the shooting and are outstanding.

Fire Department Paramedics transported the victim to Granada Hills Hospital, where he was pronounced dead by the attending physician.

The victim is identified as Meliso Martinez, 27 years old, a resident of Mission Hills.

The suspects are described as male Hispanics, possible gang members.

The motive for this homicide is gang related.

Devonshire Homicide Detectives Fleming and Bogison are conducting the investigation. Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is urged to contact Devonshire detectives at 818-756-8291.

Detective III Oppelt provided this information.
