Man Shot and Killed; Gunman Arrested

 

Los Angeles: On October 22, 2004, at about 10:10 a.m., Northeast Area patrol officers responded to a shooting call in the 5000 block of York Boulevard in the Highland Park. Upon arrival at the location, the officers found 50 year-old Jorge Rivas, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics responded and transported Rivas to Huntington Memorial Hospital in the City of Pasadena. After several hours of surgery, Rivas died as a result from his injuries.

The suspect in this homicide has been identified as 61 year-old Robert Awwad. Suspect Awwad was arrested at the scene by the officers and the murder weapon was recovered. The motive for this homicide appears to be a business dispute.

Suspect Awwad was booked for murder and is being held on a $1,000,000 bail.

Anyone with information is requested to call Northeast Homicide Detectives, at 213-847-4261. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
