On the evening of May 29, 1999, at approximately 10:15 P.M., Scott Foreman Jr. and several family members were attending a BBQ in front of 1100 block of N. Beachwood Drive.

The suspect then shot the victim once and fled the location on foot. A second male Hispanic with a shaved or bald head was seen with Cahuex. An eyewitness and the victim's father identified Eric Cahuex as the shooter. Cahuex is a known Hollywood street gang member. He is currently on probation for spousal battery. Cahuex should be considered armed and dangerous. The murder weapon is still outstanding. Cahuex may be staying with friends in the Hollywood area.
