Gang Related Shooting Leaves One Dead

 

Los Angeles: On September 14, 2002, at 11:16 p.m., West Valley Area uniformed officers responded to a "Shots Fired, Ambulance En-Route" radio call in the 7500 block of Irondale Avenue, Winnetka. The responding officers were directed to the back yard of a single-family residence where a party, attended by 20-25 teenagers, had been held. The officers were led to a 15 year-old male Hispanic gang member who had been shot several times and was lying on the lawn at the location. The victim was subsequently transported to West Hills Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

The investigation revealed that the victim was approached by a lone male who arrived at the location just as the party was ending. The suspect inquired as to which gang the victim belonged. When the victim responded, the suspect drew a handgun and fired several shots at the victim, striking him in the chest, arm and leg. The suspect fled and was seen entering a light colored vehicle that was parked a block away on Covello St.

No suspects have been identified or arrested in connection with this case.

West Valley Homicide Unit is conducting the investigation. Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is urged to call homicide detectives at 818-756-8546. On weekends or during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).

This press release was prepared by Public Information Officer Eduardo Funes, Media Relations Section 213-485-3586.
