Police make Echo Park arrests in connection with 2010 murder

ECHO PARK — Police made five arrests today after serving search warrants at five homes in the Echo Park area as part of an investigation into a 2010 murder.  Detective Brian Putnam with the LAPD Central Division said officers also confiscated several weapons and ammunition during the early morning raids, which involved members of the LAPD SWAT Team. Officers were seen this morning at several homes on Echo Park Avenue and Baxter Street.

Putnam said the 2010 murder did not take place in Echo Park but he declined to provide further details, including the what charges the suspects are facing. He said today’s search warrants were not related to the Echo Park gang injunction.

  1. Does anyone know any additional details?

  2. Is it really any of your business?

  3. Thank you, LAPD !

  4. Five down, and only a few more left to go. If gentrification means getting rid of these losers, I’m all for it.

  5. Eastsider, any updates on what happened?

  6. Peter Lopez, wanted in connection with the in the back shooting of the young man who worked at Silverlake Trader Joes, has he been found yet? I know that was in 2011, but this reminded me of that.
