Murder Suspect Sought in Hollywood

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect responsible for the shooting of two men, one was killed and the other was injured. 

On December 17, 2008 at about 8:40 p.m., officers responded to a shooting call in the 900 block of North Hobart Boulevard.  When the officers arrived, they found Jose Jorge Perez, a 29-year old resident of Hollywood, and his 41-year old companion inside a parked car at that location.  Both were suffering from gunshot wounds.
 
Paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department pronounced Perez dead at the scene and transported the other victim to a local hospital where he is in stable condition.

Based on preliminary information, detectives believe that Perez saw gang members vandalizing property with graffiti.   Perez decided to confront the gang members about the graffiti.  In an apparent response to the comments about the graffiti, one gang member pulled out a gun and fired into the car killing Perez and injuring his passenger.  The gunman ran from the scene southbound on Hobart Boulevard.

The injured victim is a 41-year old Hispanic man, who resides in Hollywood.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighing about 160 pounds, approximately 21 years of age.  The suspect was wearing dark clothing. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Hollywood Homicide Detectives Rolando Rodriguez or Chris Gable at 213-972-2910 or 213-972-2901. After-hours and on weekends calls may be directed to the 24-hour toll-free number,1-877-LAPD-24-7 or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website, www.lapdonline.org.  Tips may remain anonymous.
