Gang Violence Claims Another Life

Los Angeles: Los Angeles detectives are asking the public's help in identifying the suspects who shot a man to death as he stood talking with friends on Sunday evening.

On July 15, 2007, at around 9:00 p.m., the victim, Michael Lynn Presley, 19, was standing in front of an apartment building in the 4500 block of West Martin Luther King Boulevard.

A dark colored car carrying three suspects drove up to the victim and his friends. The two passengers got out of the car and fired several rounds at Presley. Presley was hit in the left thigh and buttocks and fell to the ground. The gunmen ran back to the waiting car and fled the scene.

Presley was able to get in the back seat of his friend's car and was driven to the parking lot at La Brea Boulevard and Rodeo Road where they waited for paramedics. Los Angeles City Fire personnel transported Presley to a local hospital where he died of his injuries.

The shooters were described only as a two male Blacks and a male Hispanic. All of the suspects were in their early 20's. The motive for this shooting is believed to be gang related.

Anyone with information is asked to contact South Bureau Detectives Rick Gordon or Vince Carreon at 213-485-2417. After hours and on weekends, phone the 24-hour toll free Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAW-FULL (1-877-529-3855).
