Man Shot and Killed While Talking to Friends

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police detectives are asking for the public's help in finding any witnesses who may have seen the shooting death of a man in the 14400 block of Kittridge Street in Van Nuys on Sunday evening.

On February 25, 2007, at about 1130 p.m., Mario Garcia Chirinos, a 20-year-old resident of Los Angeles was shot and killed while talking to some friends. Mario was approached by several male Hispanics who asked him where he was from. One of the suspects, armed with a handgun, fired several shots at Mario striking him on the chest. Mario's friends drove him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead from his wounds.

The motive for the shooting appears to be gang-related.

Anyone with information is asked to call Van Nuys Detectives at 818-374-0040. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
