LAPD Search for Man who Attempted to Kill 9-Year-Old Girl NR10390kr

Los Angeles: A suspect who attempted to shoot to death a young girl playing in her own yard is still at large.  LAPD detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect responsible for this brutal attempt to take a young girl’s life.  

On July 27, 2010, at about 6:45 p.m., the victim was innocently playing in her backyard in the 7800 block of Troost Avenue.  A male Hispanic suspect driving a black sedan drove through the alley and stopped his car near where the girl was playing.  He looked directly at her and fired four to six rounds from a semi-automatic handgun at her.  Though several of the shots came within inches of the child, she was shaken but not injured.  

Today, detectives held a news conference to enlist the public’s help in identifying and locating this armed and dangerous suspect. This crime has outraged the community and detectives alike.  It is hoped that someone in the community who knows about this crime will come forward and provide the information investigators need to make an arrest and provide peace of mind to the victim and her family.

Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call Foothill Major Assault Crimes Detectives, Detective Hector Guzman at 818-834-3115.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers 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.
