Attempt Murder and Suicide

 

Koreatown - The Los Angeles Police Department's Wilshire Homicide Detectives are investigating a shooting that occurred on Thursday, February 18, 2001, at approximately 9:20 a.m. at 1010 South Westmoreland Avenue. The victim was a 14-year-old female Hispanic and her name was not released due to her age.

The victim was at a family friend's residence when her 17-year old boy friend shot her in the head area with a handgun. The boy friend then shot himself in the head with the same weapon. Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the boy friend dead as a result of a self inflicted gunshot wound.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where she was placed on life support system. The motive for the shooting appears to be domestic dispute.
