Eastside Crime Watch: Weekend review

The Eastsider is reviving its Eastside Crime Watch feature after the LAPD earlier this year teamed up with the Omega Group and its CrimeMapping unit to present updated crime reports online.  Eastside Crime Watch returns with a review of this weekend’s crimes.

The most serious crimes included a shooting in Lincoln Heights that left an 18-year-old dead and a shooting in El Sereno that left a bystander injured after taggers opened fire. Here’s the rundown of crimes from CrimeMapping Friday, July 15 to Sunday, July 17:
