May 8, 2017

Harbor City: The Los
Angeles Police Department’s Harbor Area Homicide detectives are
seeking the public’s assistance in capturing the suspects
responsible for the shooting death of Juan Ignacio Alcala.
On January 18, 2017, around 4:25 p.m., officers responded to the
1200 block of West 256th Street for a shooting investigation. When
the officers arrived, they found 29-year-old Juan Ignacio Alcala
suffering from gunshot wounds. Detectives arrived at the location
and their investigation revealed that Alcala was standing in the
back yard of his home when the suspects approached him and shot him
multiple times. Alcala died as a result of his injuries.

The three suspects were captured on video parking a white van
shortly before the shooting. Detectives have been able to identify
the driver as 22-year-old Andy Leonel Garcia of Harbor City. Garcia
is seen parking the van on 256th Street and then getting out of the
van with two additional suspects. Detectives believe that after
getting out of the van, the three suspects ran to the rear of the
victim’s residence and shot him. Following the shooting, the
suspects ran back to the van and fled southbound on Normandie
Avenue. Detectives are seeking the whereabouts of Garcia as well as
the identity of the two additional suspects.
The suspect’s vehicle is described as a white 1998 Astro Van.
