21-Year-Old Killed in Gang Violence

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the person(s) responsible for the shooting death of 21-year old Derek Chambers.  

On Saturday evening, May 31, 2008, at around 11:00 p.m., Southeast patrol officers were patrolling in the area of 108th Street and Figueroa Street when they heard four to five shots from the immediate area.  The officers saw several people who were fleeing eastbound on 108th Street from Figueroa Street.  As officers continued to investigate they found Chambers in front of 511 W. 108th Street, who had been shot multiple times.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics transported Chambers to local hospital where he died from his injuries.  

No suspects were seen.  Witnesses told investigators that they had seen a dark four-door sedan drive away after hearing the gunshots.  

The motive for this shooting is unknown, however it was likely gang related.  The suspect(s), vehicle and weapon remain outstanding.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call South Bureau Homicide Detectives Roger Allen or Scott Wilhelm at 213-485-1383.  After hours and on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAW-FULL (529-3855).
