Man Fatally Shot in Panorama City NR13086pv

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD Mission Homicide Detectives are investigating the fatal shooting of a 35-year-old man who was apparently walking on Parthenia Street, east of Cedros Avenue on March 16, 2013.

“Several neighbors called 9-1-1 reporting gunfire in the area,” said Capt. Todd Chamberlain, commanding officer of LAPD Mission Area Police Station.  “But we have yet to know if the suspects were on foot or in a car, or why this shooting happened.”

The gunfire was reported at 10:35 p.m. and police arrived quickly to find the man bleeding badly.  He later died on the way to the hospital with paramedics.

Officers canvassed the area, interviewing people in the nearby tattoo parlor, taco shop, and the large apartment complex across the street.

Detectives have not determined the motive for the shooting.  The victim was a Hispanic man who lived nearby, and he had no documented gang affiliation.

“We’re asking the public’s help in solving this murder,” Capt. Chamberlain added.  “Detectives suspect the 9-1-1 callers might have seen more than they reported, and would like them to come forward with any information.”

The victim’s name will be released once his family has been notified.

This is the first homicide in Panorama City this year.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Detective Efren Gutierrez, Mission Homicide Unit, at 818-838-9948.  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.
