Los Angeles: On Tuesday, March 29, 2005, at approximately 1:00 p.m., Michael Ryan Livingston, a 20-year-old, college student, was driving his silver 1998 Chevrolet Camero northbound on the 110 Harbor Freeway, when suspects in another vehicle shot and killed him.† His untimely death sent shock waves through the Southland.
Today, the Los Angeles Police Department announced that after an exhaustive investigation and manhunt, that spanned over two states (California and Nevada), the LAPD's 77th Street Homicide Detectives solved the case, with the assistance of the community and its law enforcement partners.† The solving of this case was a multi-agency team effort that was made possible through the dedication, professionalism and strong partnerships forged by the LAPD, ATF, and the United States Marshals.
Detectives have identified known gang members as the murderers of Mr. Livingston and they are now in custody for various crimes, including murder.
The first suspect, Díandre Keyshaun Moorer, is a 27-year-old resident of Los Angeles, who goes by the street name of "Scandalous D."† He is an active and violent gang member with an extensive criminal record.† Murder charges have been filed on Mr. Moorer, and he will be in Division 30 of the Criminal Courts Building on Monday, July 25, 2005, at 8:30 a.m.† Moorer is cooperating with this investigation.
The second suspect, Donald Ray Shorts, a 23-year-old Los Angeles resident, is already in custody for several unrelated murders committed in both Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties.
