Gang Shooting Leaves One Man Dead

LAPD Newsroom | December 23, 2011

Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Northeast Division Homicide detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that would lead to the identification and arrest of suspects responsible for fatally shooting a 20-year-old man in the Glassell Park area.

Today, around 12:01 a.m., Edgar DeJesus and his two friends were walking in the 3000 block of Estrada Street in the Glassell Park community of Los Angeles.  As the group stopped in front of a house in the 3100 block of Estrada Street, an unknown vehicle drove by and stopped.  Two suspects got out of the car and confronted DeJesus, asking for his gang affiliation.  During the confrontation, one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and shot at DeJesus. DeJesus ran eastbound on Estra Street towards Fletcher Avenue and two suspects gave chase.  One suspect continued to fire rounds at DeJesus and struck him multiple times in the upper torso.  DeJesus ran a short time and collapsed on the street in the 3300 block of Fletcher Drive.

After the shooting, both suspects ran to their parked vehicle, got into the car and drove off westbound on Estrada Avenue to southbound Andrita Street.
