16-year-old Shot and Killed

Update: The male victim has been identified as Jay Quan Johnson

Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying the person(s) responsible for the shooting death of a 16-year-old Los Angeles resident.

On Monday, October 20, 2008 at about 9:30 p.m., officers responded to a radio call of a shooting at the 5100 block of Pickford Street.  When officers arrived, they found a victim with gunshot wounds.  

Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel provided medical treatment to the victim at the scene and transported him to a local area hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

The victim had been standing on the sidewalk with friends when a vehicle with several suspects drove along side them and opened fire.  The victim was hit by the gunfire as he and his friends ran for cover.  The suspect's vehicle collided with other parked vehicles as they fled the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Wilshire Homicide Detectives Mark Holguin and Ron Kim at 213-473-0446.  After hours and on weekends calls may be directed to the 24-hour toll free number, 1-877-LAW-FULL (529-3855).  Callers may also text "CRIMES" with a cell phone or by logging on to www.lapdonline.org and clicking on Web Tips.  When using a cell phone always begin the message with "LAPD." All calls and contacts are anonymous.
