Man Shot and Injured at Party, Second Man Shot and Killed

Los Angeles: A man was shot and injured early Saturday morning at a party in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles. The suspect in the shooting, himself hit by gunfire as he rode in a car fleeing the scene, died enroute to the hospital.

Shortly after midnight, the morning of Saturday, June 3, 2006, officers were called to a shooting at a residence in the 1500 block of Waldran Avenue. Police found the victim, identified as Alexander Foster, a 26-year-old male White, with a gunshot wound to the head. Foster was taken by paramedics to a local hospital where he was admitted in stable condition.

Witnesses described the suspects as 3-4 male Blacks and 1 female Hispanic, seen speeding away in a dark Mercedez. As additional LAPD units responded to the scene of the shooting, several calls were received from the Pasadena Police Department. Pasadena officers reported detaining 2 male Blacks and 1 female Hispanic who had arrived at a local hospital driving a dark blue Mercedez. In the back of the vehicle was 17-year-old Kwame Gordon, a male Black, dead of a gunshot wound.

Preliminary reports revealed that Gordon and several friends had arrived at the Waldran Avenue residence for a graduation party and were denied entrance. Several minutes later, Foster, a friend of the party host, saw Gordon and his friends loitering outside the home, causing a disturbance. He asked the group to leave. Gordon then reportedly pulled a handgun and shot Foster once in the head. An unknown suspect(s) fired several rounds in Gordon's direction as he left, striking him once in the upper body.

The shooting does not appear to be gang related.

Anyone with information is asked to call Northeast Homicide Detective Carrillo or Yamada at 213-847-4261, during normal business hours. After hours and on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free Detective Information Desk at 1-877-ASK-LAPD (275-3855). The identity of callers wishing to remain anonymous will remain protected.
