Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department Criminal Gang/Homicide Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that would lead to the arrest of the suspect(s) who killed 19-year-old Patrick Caruthers.

On September 25, 2012, around 3:15 p.m., Caruthers was sitting on a park bench at a local community park in the 1530 block of West 62nd Street when an unknown suspect walked up to Caruthers and shot him multiple times in the torso.

The suspect ran back to an awaiting vehicle and drove away West on 62nd Street and southbound on Denker Avenue.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded and pronounced Caruthers dead at scene.

The motive for the shooting appears to be gang related.  There is no suspect description.  The suspects’ vehicle is described as a dark colored compact vehicle.

The suspects and the weapon are outstanding. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Criminal Gang/Homicide Division, Detective Lyman Doster or Stacey Szymkowiak 213-485-1383.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247). 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.”
