Los Angeles--On Sunday morning, March 26, 2000, at approximately 1:00 a.m., three male Hispanic suspects drove their vehicle, an unknown year blue Toyota Corolla four door, into the parking lot of a liquor store located at 247 E Manchester Avenue. One of the suspects exited the above vehicle and confronted Alexander Zavala, a male Hispanic, 23 years of age as he exited the store.
