"Drive-by Shooting Leaves One Dead and Two Injured"

 

Los Angeles: On Saturday, September 14, 2002, at approximately 7:55 p.m., Foothill uniformed patrol officers responded to a "Shots Fired-Ambulance En Route" radio call to the 13400 block of Mercer Street, Pacoima. Upon arrival at the scene, officers were directed to three shooting victims.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a group of people, including the victims, were standing in the street when a black vehicle sped by. A member of the crowd told the occupants of the vehicle to slow down. The vehicle returned and the occupants of the vehicle fired into the group of people, striking three of the four victims.

The three injured victims were transported to local hospitals. Victim Nancy Ramirez, a 23-year-old resident of Pacoima died as a result of her injuries. Two male juvenile shooting victims are in stable condition. An additional 18-year-old female who was standing with the shooting victims was not struck by the gunfire.

The weapon and suspect(s) are not in custody.

Foothill Homicide Detectives Charles Lenane and Jim Freund responded to the scene and assumed responsibility of the investigation. Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is urged to contact Foothill Detectives at 818 834-3115. On weekends and during off-hours please call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk 1 877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
