Police were able to trace the location of the shooting to the area of Indian School, just east of San Pedro. They are still investigating. They don’t have any suspects at this time and are urging anyone with information to call them.
Police say the killer will be caught. “If I can plea to the public, to these individuals that feel the need to use weapons to solve problems, it’s not the solution,” said Lieutenant Ray Del Greco. “Because we will find you and we are very good at putting those people that are using weapons to solve their problems in prisons for a long period of time.”
APD says they have a clearance rate of roughly 93% for homicides. They don’t believe there is any further threat to the nearby community.
