Shooting Investigation in Rampart Area

"Shooting Investigation in Rampart Area"

 

Los Angeles - Rampart Homicide Detectives are investigating the shooting death of a female Hispanic, 15 years of age.

On Monday, June 18, 2001, at approximately 2:00 a.m., Rampart Area patrol officers responded to a Prowler Call at 826 North Lucille Avenue near Bellevue Park. Upon arrival, officers observed suspects in the park and heard a single gunshot. Officers took the suspect into custody and noted that the suspect had self-sustained gunshot wound to his hand. The suspect was identified as Jose Chavez, 21 years old, a resident of Los Angeles. Chavez was booked for Assault with Deadly Weapon.

Officers searched the rest of the park and discovered the victim down in the park with an apparent gunshot wound to the upper torso. LAFD Paramedics responded and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

The preliminary investigation revealed a second victim was shot in the upper torso and fled the park to a friends house. The victim was then transported to an emergency facility by his friend and was treated for a single gun shot wound to his arm. The victim is in stable condition.

The suspect(s) and weapon are outstanding. The motive for the shooting is unknown. The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Rampart Homicide Unit at 213-207-2051.

This press release was prepared by Public Information Officer Jason Lee, Media Rations Section 213-485-3586.
