Teenager Found Shot to Death NR11084kr

Los Angeles: A 15-year-old girl was found shot to death inside an apartment early Sunday morning.

On February 20, 2011, at about 5:40 a.m., officers from Wilshire Area were called to an apartment complex in the 1300 block of South 3rd Avenue to investigate a call of “Unknown Trouble.”  When they arrived they found a 15-year-old female Hispanic inside on of the apartments, suffering from a single gunshot wound.

Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel responded to the apartment and pronounced the girl dead at scene.

The victim, whose identity is being withheld by Detectives, was a resident of Los Angeles. Investigators believe she was shot sometime on Sunday while with a group of friends in the apartment.  

On Monday, February 21, 2011, Homicide Detectives identified and arrested a suspect who is a 17-year-old female Hispanic and resident of Los Angeles.  Her name is not being released because she is a juvenile.

A motive for the murder has not been determined and investigators are asking anyone with information about this shooting to contact Wilshire Homicide Detectives John Jamison or Mark Holguin at 213-473-0446.  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 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.
