LAPD Seeks Person of Interest in Recent Club Shooting NR09546ah

Updated:

November 17, 2009,  Van Nuys detectives have arrested two suspects in connection with this crime, but they are still seeking the public’s help in locating the vehicle and additional witnesses


Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives want to question a “person of interest” in connection with a Sherman Oaks club shooting that occurred on Nov. 13.  A 30-year-old man was left in critical condition and detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying the individual in question.

Investigators are looking for a man shown in a surveillance photo wearing a light blue-shirt and light-blue pants who was seen inside Smiley’s restaurant located at 13615 Ventura Boulevard prior to the shooting.  Detectives believe that the man was involved in an altercation and the shooting.  He was last seen entering the passenger side of a getaway car described as a late- model, light-color Honda or Toyota.  The car was last seen traveling west on Ventura Boulevard.

Just before 2 a.m., the victim was standing outside the restaurant and was confronted by two men.  A fight broke out and one of the men wrestled the victim to the ground and shot him in the head with a large caliber handgun.  The victim was rushed to a local hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

A short time later, an unidentified man suffering from a gunshot wound was dropped off at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank.  Detectives are trying to determine if the two incidents are related.

A still photo of the man wanted for questioning is available through Media Relations Section.  Images of a group of suspects involved in the incident were captured by surveillance camera and are available at www.lapdtv.org.  

Anyone with information or who recognizes this person of interest is urged to call LAPD Van Nuys Area homicide detectives at (818) 374-1917/1918.  During off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
