Man Murdered in Broad Daylight on Busy City Street NR09556kr

Los Angeles:  A Los Angeles man was shot and killed Sunday afternoon as he walked with a friend near the busy intersection of South La Brea Avenue and Olympic Boulevard.

On November 22, 2009, at around 2:35 p.m., 18-year-old Juan Segura was walking along the sidewalk in the 1000 block of South La Brea Avenue when a car pulled alongside of him and his friend and one of the car occupants opened fire on them.  Segura was hit by the gunfire and collapsed on the sidewalk.  He was transported to a local hospital by Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel and pronounced dead a short time later.  Segura's friend was not injured.

Detectives are still investigating the possible motive for this murder.  They believe that there may have been many witnesses who fled the area after the shooting, but may possess valuable information that could help lead Detectives to the suspects.  La Brea Avenue is a major thoroughfare that runs through the Mid-City area of Los Angeles and was heavily travelled at the time of the shooting. 

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Wilshire Area Homicide Detectives, Detectives Frank Carrillo or Javier Hernandez at 213-473-0446.  After-hours and on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at1-877-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.
