One Dead, Three Wounded in Gang-Related Shooting in Palmdale

NBCLA | August 25, 2013

One man was fatally shot and three others were wounded early Sunday in a gang-related attack in Palmdale, a sheriff’s deputy said.

The shootings occurred about 1:30 a.m. at East Avenue Q-6 and Lilac View Avenue, said Deputy Aura Sierra-Lidman of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

“The incident occurred when suspects walked up to a garage where the victims were hanging out,” said Sgt. Rich Pena. “A confrontation ensued and the suspects opened fire, mortally injuring one victim and wounding three others, before running to a car and fleeing the scene.”

Pena said homicide investigators have determined the shooting was gang-related.

Four shooting victims were transported to hospitals and one of them, later identified as 32-year-old Dean Joseph Klein of Palmdale, died at the hospital, Sierra-Lidman said.

“The three additional victims have non life-threatening injuries,” Sierra-Lindman said.

Two men, ages 21 and 30, were treated and released, as was a 23-year-old woman.
