19-Year-Old Man Shot and Killed in Los Angeles NR14227dm

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department Northeast Homicide Detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that may lead to the arrest of the suspect responsible for the killing of 19-year-old Christopher Hernandez, a resident of Los Angeles.

On June 5, 2014, around 10:58 A.M., Northeast Division officers responded to a 9-1-1 call of a shooting in the 4300 block of West Sunset Boulevard.  When the officers arrived they found the victim lying on the sidewalk, suffering from what appeared to be gunshot wounds.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics transported the victim to a local hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries.

Witnesses told investigators that they saw a black, late model 4 door car approach Hernandez as he walked on Sunset Boulevard.  The suspect, described as a male Hispanic in his 20s, fired multiple shots, striking Hernandez numerous times.  The vehicle fled east on Sunset Boulevard towards Fountain Avenue.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call Northeast Division Homicide Detectives Governo and Aguilar at 323-344-5744.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (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 LAPDOnline.org, click on “webtips” and follow the prompts.
