Multiple Victims Shot with One Dead in South Central NR12393cj

Los Angeles:  On Sunday, August 19, 2012, around 12:40 a.m., LAPD Southeast Homicide Detectives responded to investigate a shooting at an apartment complex in the 600 block of Caliburn Drive. Detectives’ investigation revealed that three people were shot.  Two people, a 31-year-old male Hispanic and a 9-year-old male Hispanic suffered from gunshot wounds and ended up in a local hospital.  The third male described as a male 37-year-old African American was apparently taken to a local hospital by family members and later was pronounced dead from multiple gunshot wounds.  The 9-year-old was treated for a grazing wound to his upper torso and released from the hospital.   The other male refused treatment at the hospital for a grazing wound to his upper torso.  A fourth man identified as a suspect was also found at a local hospital being treated for a gunshot wound to his lower extremities.   

Detectives gathered that the slain victim, De Edmond Brown, was socializing with friends when a male, later identified as an African American male and another male African American approached the group.  One of the men pulled out a gun and started firing into the group.  The victims ran in separate direction to escape the gunfire.  Brown ran inside of the apartment complex where he was tracked down in a hallway by the suspects.  The suspects shot Brown multiple times in the upper torso then ran away from the scene.  Detectives found and detained one of the suspects at the hospital.  After a thorough investigation, detectives arrested and booked him for murder.  The name of the suspect arrested at the hospital is being withheld pending further investigation. The second suspect is still outstanding.  The investigation appears to be gang related and is on-going.    

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Southeast Homicide Detectives at (213) 485-6571.  During weekends and off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAPD24-7 (1-877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
