21-Year-Old Shot and Killed

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives are investigating the shooting death of 21-year-old Gilberto Solano of North Hollywood.

On February 10, 2009 at about 9:15 p.m., LAPD and Los Angeles Fired Department (LAFD) personnel responded to a radio call of a possible shooting at the 6600 block of Laurel Canyon Blvd.  When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to his chest.  

LAFD personnel rushed Solano to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.  

Investigators determined that the victim and the suspect got into a heated argument about their rival gangs.  When the victim walked away, the suspect went to his vehicle, retrieved a gun and then confronted the victim.  The suspect fired one shot into the victim’s chest and fled in his vehicle with an accomplice.

Detectives have few leads and no suspect or vehicle description.  

The motive of the shooting appears to be gang related.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact North Hollywood Homicide Detective Richard Wheeler 818-623-4075.  After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  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.”  All calls and contacts are anonymous.
