Gang Shooting Leaves One Man Dead

14:56 |

Los Angeles: 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.

Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics transported DeJesus to a nearby hospital where he died a short time later. Detectives believe the motive for the shooting is gang related.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Northeast Area Homicide Division, Detectives L. Governo or J. Carillo at 213-847-4261. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
