LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT
PRESS RELEASE
Wednesday, May 19, 1999

On Monday, May 17, 1999 at 2:40 p.m., Los Angeles Unified School District Police officers assigned to Pacific Palisades High School located at 15777 Bowdoin Street in West Los Angeles, received a radio call of shots fired in front of the school. LAUSD officers responded to the location and found two victims who had been shot by suspect(s). Witnesses advised LAUSD officers that four suspects fled in a green compact vehicle. LAUSD officers observed the suspects' vehicle and follow them on the Santa Monica Freeway at the San Diego Freeway where all four suspects were taken into custody without further incident with assistance from LAPD's West Los Angeles Division officers. During the search of the suspects' vehicle, officers recovered a 25 caliber, chrome, semi-automatic handgun along with a magazine containing live rounds.

Victim Vontray Gardner, 18 years of age, a student of Pacific Palisades High School received a through and through gunshot wound to his left thigh. Victim Ron Price, 52 years of age, a teacher at the same school received a grazing wound to his left ankle. Both victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Investigation revealed that the shooting was the result of a confrontation and argument earlier between suspects and Victim Gardner at the school. Suspects returned, armed with a handgun and fired two shots toward Victim Gardner who was in front of the school striking Gardner and Victim Price.
