On Tuesday morning, LAPD detectives made an arrest in the fatal shooting death of Ronnie “Looney” Barron, 40, the community activist that was murdered in his old neighborhood on Pico Blvd. Ronnie, apparently confronted a 16-year old teen, that was writing graffiti across the street from the Cottage Bar on a blue trash dumpster.

Even though the suspect is Hispanic, there are no indications that race / ethnicity played a role in the shooting. According to the police, the shooting was not motivated by gang influences either. Below are photos of graffiti that the murder suspect wrote, just moments before the shooting.

The graffiti says, “W/S CAE LS” which means “Catching All Enemies” or “Chasing All Enemies.”

    This is a tremendous loss to everyone that knew him and to our community. “West LA” He worked hard to turn gang members into doing the right thing by stoping the madness and convincing them to do the right thing which is to stop gang banging. Looney will always be remembered. God Bless his soul. Rest in peace O.G. !!

    Real talk, This is his blood family talking. My cousin is not dying for nothing. He spent the later part of his life, convincing others that change is possible, by his example. Put the guns down, pick up a book..and let the people who know how to dish out justice do just that.

    Ronnie and I met at LA Harbor Collge, we did 2 semester there and become the best of friends. One thing I can say about him was that he was a solid brother of “Giving Back”. Playing it Forward was our thing. Always checking on each other strengths. To hear that he died for a justice cause, was unbelievable. But that was “Loony”. Roonie was a light unto others… “Matthew 5:14.16” Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your goodworks, and glorify your Father which is in heaven… My heart goes out to is family and Taylor his fiencee and his two childern. “GOD BLESS YOU SOLIDER”…

    To Brown and Gold its obvious that ur an ignorant illegal alien from mexico over here in the states probably hiding out from raping ur sister, cousin, or brother out there in mexico and now ur online using stolen wifi signals tryn to diss a positive black man who if u ever were to meet in person would foe sho light ur chile rellino blank up!!! I can’t stand people like u tryn to be hard and tryn to be racist. And to M GOLD right on for reporting this prick who aint got no respect home training out in the barros and jealous bcuz ur brown instead of BLACK MUTHAf#@$kA!!! Sincerely a pissed off sister from the avenues!!

    First off, Raping is very low and anyone who commits this would be taxed in this life or the next.
    I cant believe all you true “homies” keep throwing this in your sentences addressing each other as rapist. “ALL” of you have no respect for the innocent people who have been raped in this community.
    Second of all, I highly doubt anyone would be jealous because they aren’t Black, vice versa Brown.
    These type of murders happen all over Southern California. White people, old people, black, brown, asian, people getting bucked just for saying “please dont tagg on my fence” All i can say, is this was a senseless crime, that ruined both of their lives as well as their family members too. Third of all, to “real ish” the one people that get raped in prison or jail facilities are black white and Asians. I believe you get your face slammed into the walls or cement if your a “Chicano” and you proceed with an act like that.

  24. M.GOLD

    TO BROWN AND PROUD,
    I AM STILL WAITING FOR A RESPONSE.

    SINCERELY.
