One Adult and Two Juveniles Arrested in Shooting Outside Los Angeles High School NR12095ne

Los Angeles:  Wilshire Gang Impact Team detectives are investigating a shooting incident that occurred outside of Los Angeles High School where two persons were shot.

On Friday, February 24, 2012, at around 3:30 p.m., two victims were shot across the street from Los Angeles High School.  The shooting was precipitated from an ongoing conflict between two different gang members who attend Los Angeles High School.  The feud escalated towards the end of the school day, where three individuals confronted two persons outside of school grounds.  An adult suspect armed himself with a handgun and shot one victim in the back and another victim in the leg.  Responding Wilshire officers and Los Angeles School Police officers located and stopped two juveniles who were also involved in the shooting.

The victims were transported to a local hospital where one victim was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg and later released.  The other victim was treated for a gunshot wound to his back and remains at the hospital in critical condition.

The investigation revealed that the shooting was gang related and that the suspect who fired the shots was outstanding.  Wilshire Detectives responded to assume the investigation and developed information that identified the outstanding suspect.  Wilshire personnel conducted a follow-up investigation to the 2700 block of San Marino, where Kevin Salazar, an 18 year-old resident of Los Angeles was arrested for attempt murder.  Salazar’s bail has been set at $500,000.00.

The investigation has disclosed that one of the victims and one of the suspects were students at Los Angeles High School.  The others were not students at the school and were believed to have been summoned to the school after the initial conflict on the campus earlier in the school day.

The two juveniles were booked and detained at Eastlake Juvenile Hall for Attempt Murder and Conspiracy to Commit an Attempt Murder.

Detectives are continuing the investigation and are requesting any additional witnesses or information that may assist with this investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident or the whereabouts of the two suspects is asked to call WilshireGang Impact Team Detectivesat 213-473-0425.  During non-business hours, calls may be directed 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may contact Crimestoppers by texting the number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
