Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Criminal Gang/Homicide Division is asking for the public’s help in identifying the person responsible for the murder of 39-year-old Martha Sanchez.

On Tuesday, September 17, 2013, at 8:50 p.m., Sanchez was working as a store clerk at a local 99 Cent store in the 7400 block of South Broadway.  A suspect, described only as an African-American male, walked into the store, robbed it and shot Sanchez numerous times.  The suspect then ran out of the store heading south on Broadway.

Shortly thereafter, a customer walked into the store and discovered Sanchez injured and telephoned for assistance.  LAPD 77th area officers and investigators searched for the suspect while Los Angeles City Fire Department responded and transported Sanchez to a local hospital where she later died.

Mrs. Sanchez is survived by her husband and her five children, which range from the ages of 3 to 19-years of age. Detectives believe motive for this incident is robbery.  The suspect and weapon are outstanding.

Anyone with information is asked to call Criminal Gang/Homicide Division, Detective Eric Crosson or John Ferreria at (213) 485-1383.   During off-hours or on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).  ).
