Suspect Identified in Double Murder NR14273PV/SF

UPDATE
August 4, 2014

Suspect in Double Murder Arrested

Panorama City:  On Saturday, August 2, 2014, Gang officers assigned to LAPD’s Mission Police Station followed a trail of gang intelligence to a local motel where they found Angel Santana, wanted in the double homicide on July 17, 2014, in front of a 7-Eleven in Panorama City.

Angel Santana was booked for murder with bail set at $1,000,000.


Panorama City: 
Detectives have released a photo of Angel Santana, 29, one of two men suspected in the double murder in Panorama City, this morning, July 17, 2014.

“Santana is a known gang member and with his appearance, it won’t be easy for him to hide,” said Capt. Todd Chamberlain, commanding officer of LAPD’s Mission Police Station.  “We’ve already alerted CHP and the US Border Patrol to be on the lookout for Santana en route to or trying to cross the border.”

Witnesses identified Santana as one of the two shooters who killed two men in front of the 7-Eleven at Roscoe and Sepulveda Boulevards around 6 AM this morning.

There was a brief confrontation or exchange of words, then the suspects pulled guns and fired.  Both men died where they fell in front of the store.  A third man, who is in his 50s, was also wounded by gunfire while standing near the victims.  He is an associate of the victims, and he is cooperating with detectives.  The injured man is in stable condition and expected to recover.

“We are still trying to piece together what motivated the shooting,” Chamberlain said.  “But we do have enough to know this was not some random act.  It appears there was some rivalry or animus between the groups.”

“With one suspect identified, it should not be long before we identify the other suspect,” Chamberlain added.  “Gang members should take note that the last double-murder suspect was just sentenced to life without the possibility of parole at 20 years old.  Killing another human being aside, what could ever be worth life in prison at 20 years old?”

Angel Santana is 5’7” tall, weighs 150 lbs.  He is missing his left eye and has tattoos over his left eyebrow, right jaw and right side of his neck.  He should be considered armed and dangerous.  He drives a tan 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck, license 7U83839 (CA).

Anyone with information is urged to call Det. Gretchen Schultz, Mission Homicide Unit, at 818-838-9951. During off-hours, calls should be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  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 www.lapdonline.org. and click on "Anonymous Web Tips.”
