Murder Suspect Arrested

 

Los Angeles: On Sunday, September 8, 2002, at 1:05 a.m., North Hollywood patrol officers responded to a shooting call in the 11400 block of Albers Street. Upon arrival they discovered the victim lying on the floor of the apartment building suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries at 1:50 a.m. The suspect responsible for the crime fled the scene in a four door gray vehicle. The suspect was described as a male, Hispanic, approximately 5 foot tall weighing 100 pounds, known as "Midget."

The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspect had an exchange of words, which resulted in the suspect shooting the victim in the chest.

Based on information gathered from several sources, North Hollywood detectives identified the suspect as 19 year-old Jose Arevalos from East Los Angeles. Arevalos was a documented gang member.

The detectives made a follow-up investigation and arrested Arevalos from his residence. The motive for this crime is still under investigation.

Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is urged to call North Hollywood detectives at 818-623-4045. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, 1-877-LAWFULL, 1-877-529-3855.
