$10,000 Reward Offered in Two Double Homicide Cases

CORRECTION: PLEASE NOTE, THE REWARD AMOUNT OFFERED SHOULD BE $10,000 NOT $20,000. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE CONFUSION

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the U.S. Attorney’s Office are asking for the public’s help in finding the persons responsible for the deaths of four people in two separate incidents.

The first incident occurred on March 18, 2003, at about 12:30 p.m. Victims Marcus Tonodeo Jr. and Demetrius Coleman, were driving northbound on Wall Street at 88th Place when they were approached by suspects in a southbound vehicle who began firing at them, forcing the victims to pull to the curb. The suspects then stopped their vehicle, exited and began firing multiple rounds from assault rifles at the victims. The victims died at the scene, and a 3-year-old child playing in a nearby front yard also survived gunshot wounds from the incident. The suspects, who were driving a white, four-door vehicle, drove away from the scene.

A second incident occurred on August 5, 2003, at 11:15 a.m., while Fabian and Tracy Alexandria, along with their 14-year-old son, were parked at a Kentucky Fried Chicken drive-through window at Manchester and Central Avenues. Three suspects approached their vehicle on foot and fired multiple rounds. Nearby, a vehicle was waiting in which the suspects drove away. Fabian and Tracy Alexandria did not survive the attack; however, their son, who was in the backseat of the car, was not injured.

Tests of firearms and ammunition from these murders, conducted by the National Integrated Ballistics Information Network, have linked these and several other murders to the same suspects.

At a Parker Center press conference earlier today, representatives from the ATF announced their offer of a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for these brutal crimes.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Detective Grace Garcia, or Detective Juan Guerra, LAPD Robbery Homicide Division at 213-485-2129, or the 24-hour toll free number, 1-877-LAW-FULL (529-3855).
