13-year-old boy killed in apparent gang-related Westlake shooting

Los Angeles Times | February 22, 2011

Police are searching for several suspects in an apparent gang-related shooting that killed a 13-year-old boy Monday in the Westlake neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Police said several men drove up to Temple Street and Benton Way about 7:25 p.m. and walked up to three teenage boys standing at the northwest corner. At least one of the men opened fire, and witnesses said they saw the boy fall to the ground before the attackers drove away in a dark-colored Toyota Camry, said Los Angeles Police Det. Michael Arteaga.

The 13-year-old boy was hit several times and pronounced dead at the scene. The two other teenagers were not wounded and fled the scene before police arrived, officials said. Police are asking them to come forward to help identify the suspects, and they urged anyone with information to call Rampart Station detectives at (213) 484-3639.
