Bicyclist Run Down and Shot, Dies at Scene; Second Victim also Shot and Injured NR12238kr

Los Angeles:   Two bicyclists were riding down the street when one of them was hit by a vehicle.  As the victim lay on the ground injured a suspect inside the sports utility vehicle (SUV) that hit him, got out and shot the victim, killing him.  The other bicyclist was also shot as he tried to ride away.

On Saturday, May 26, 2012, at around 1:20 p.m., 19-year-old Shaoyan Almazan and a friend were riding their bicycles in the 900 block of South New Hampshire Street.  As they rounded the corner from San Marino Avenue to New Hampshire Street, the driver of an SUV ran into Almazan knocking him from his bicycle.  A gunman then got out of the SUV and shot Almazan multiple times.

As the second victim was riding away, he was shot in the hand.  He was found in the 800 block of Vermont Avenue where he stopped to call for help.

Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel responded and pronounced Almazan dead at scene.  The second victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspected shooter was a male wearing a hooded sweatshirt and was of medium height and weight.

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to contact West Bureau Homicide Detectives, Detective Mark Morgan at 213-382-9470.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
