Bike Rider Shot and Killed NR11327kr

Los Angeles:  Gang violence appears to be the motive in the shooting death of a 17-year-old male Hispanic. His name is being withheld until his family can be notified.

On Saturday, July 16, 2011, at about 8:30 p.m., Hollenbeck Area Officers were called to the area of 300 West Avenue 33 to investigate a shooting. When they arrived they found the victim in front of a closed business, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Los Angeles City Fire Rescue Department personnel responded and transported the victim to USCMC where he died a short time later.

Detectives believe the victim had been riding his bicycle through a mostly industrial area when he encountered several apparent gang members who opened fire on him as he attempted to pedal away.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Hollenbeck Area Homicide Detectives, Detectives  J. Rios or Cary Ricard at 323-342-8959. During non-business hours or weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800)-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most key pads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
