***Update***
07-02-11

Today, July 2, 2011, at around 4 a.m., a task force of the U.S. Marshall’s Service along with the Los Angeles Police Department Criminal Gang/Homicide Division, 77th Squad arrested 21-year-old Edward Marroquin, a male Hispanic, 21 years of age, in the city of Cudahy.   Marroquin was driving a Toyota Highlander when he was taken into custody during a traffic stop.  Additionally, a loaded semi-automatic handgun was recovered within the vehicle.  Both the SUV and the weapon are believed to have been used in the shooting of Ismael Villegas.

On July 2, 2011, at around 11 a.m., Los Angeles Police Department Criminal Gang/Homicide Division, 77th Squad arrested the co-suspect, a female Hispanic juvenile whose name is being withheld due to her age.  Both are charged with murder.

On July 5, 2011, the case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney Hardcore Division for filing consideration.

Los Angeles:  A young couple walking down a South Los Angeles ally were confronted by an armed suspect who shot and killed one of them.

On Wednesday, June 22, 2011, at around 2:20 p.m., 21-year-old Ismael Villegas and his girlfriend were walking east bound in the alley adjacent to 5815 South 2nd Avenue.  A male Hispanic in his early twenties walked up to the pair and confronted Villegas about his gang affiliation and then shot Villegas multiple times.

After the shooting the suspect ran to a parked vehicle, got into the driver’s seat and drove off.  The vehicle was a dark colored sports utility vehicle with a female Hispanic passenger who was 18-23 years of age.

Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics transported Villegas to a nearby hospital where he died a short time later.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Criminal Gang/Homicide Division, Detectives John Ferreria and Myra Kellum at 213-485-1383. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
