Security Cameras Installed at Park, Site of Patrick Caruthers Slaying

Jonathan Lloyd | January 24, 2013

Six security cameras with a panning capability that provides 360-degree views have been installed at Jackie Tatum-Harvard Recreation Center four months after a 19-year-old man was shot and ki*led as he sat on a park bench.

Patrick Caruthers was listening to music on the bench at 3 p.m. Sept. 28 when a gunman shot him several times in the back. The Los Angeles Trade Technical College student was a volunteer at the park until he was hired to work with the Summer Night Lights anti-gang program.

Funding for the cameras was approved by the LA City Council seven months before the Caruthers shooting and moved to the City Administrative Office in August. The plan did not move out of the Public Safety Committee until a month later.

The new cameras were dedicated in honor of Caruthers, with a commemorative plaque to be displayed on the park grounds.

“I am glad that the cameras are now installed,” said Gail Sears, Caruthers’ mother. “My only regret is they weren’t installed prior to my son’s murder.”
