Murder in a Convenience Store Parking Lot NR12349kr

Los Angeles:  A man was shot and killed early Tuesday morning while getting into his car after making a purchase inside a convenience store.

On July 24, 2012, around 1:10 a.m., 28-year-old Lamar Green drove to a convenience store located at the corner of Victory Boulevard and Reseda Boulevard with a friend.  Green and his 28-year-old male friend went into the store to make a purchase.  As they were returning to their parked car a 20 to 30-year-old male Hispanic, or Black, walked up from the sidewalk just south of the parking lot and opened fire on Green.  After the shooting the suspect walked away, west on Victory Boulevard.

Green was hit multiple times, but his friend avoided being hit.  Police personnel arrived within minutes and immediately called for Los Angeles Fire Department rescue personnel.  Green was transported to a local hospital, but died a short while after arriving.

The motive for this crime has not been determined although investigators believe that Green was targeted by the suspect.  

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact West Valley Homicide Detectives at 818-374-7709.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247).   Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone 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 www.lapdonline.org, and click on "Anonymous Web Tips.”
