Gang Shooting Leaves One Dead

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives are investigating a shooting that left one man dead and one injured in the Department's 77th Division.

On Monday, Oct. 20, 2008, at about 9 p.m., both victims were standing in front of a residence at the 600 block of West 68th Street.  The victims were approached by two males on foot who yelled out a gang reference and fired multiple shots at the victims.  Both victims sustained several gunshot wounds and tried going back into the residence.  The suspects fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Victim Damon Lamont Jones, 38, was transported by paramedics to a local hospital where he later died.  The second victim was also transported to a local hospital by paramedics, where he was treated and expected to survive.   

The suspects are described as male Blacks and their weapons are still outstanding.  The motive for the shooting is believed to be gang related.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact LAPD South Bureau Detectives E. Crossnon or M. Kellum at 213-485-1383.  After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855). 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."
