13-Year-Old Boy Killed

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect(s) who shot and killed a 13-year-old juvenile in Echo Park.

On March 6, 2007, around 8:00 p.m., Rampart patrol officers responded to a call of an ambulance shooting in the 800 block of North Bonnie Brae where they found 13-year old, Anthony Ezquiel Escobar lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds.

Paramedics responded to the scene and rushed the young teen to a nearby hospital where he later died.

Anthony had gone outside to pick some lemons from a nearby tree, when he was shot and killed by unknown suspects, authorities said.

One of his family members who was home at the time, went outside to see what was delaying Anthony and found the young boy lying on the ground in the driveway.

The investigation is in the preliminary stages and the motive for the shooting is unclear.

There is no suspect or vehicle description at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is asked to contact Rampart Homicide Detectives John Motto or George Lee at 213-207-2060. During off-hours or on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
