SWAT Team in Echo Park*

Echo Park, police

ECHO PARK — An LAPD SWAT Team was finishing up an operation this morning in Echo Park near Echo Park Avenue and Baxter Street.   Sgt. Phillips at the LAPD Northeast Division said she had no further details at this time.

* Update @ 7:30 a.m.: Officers were seen at several homes on Echo Park Avenue across from Elysian Heights Elementary and at the former Baxter Street residence of Eric Zamarripa, the Echo Park gang leader who was fatally shot in front of the home in 2009 by a man working for the Mexican Mafia.  An LAPD spokeswoman could not provide more details but said the officers had been at the scene for several hours.

    Right now, two cop cars (one unmarked) and 3 young cops standing around with hands in pockets out front of 2049 Echo Park Ave.

            Right. I’m scared. That’s your intention right? To “scare me”. You gonna shot me tough guy? That’s gonna prove to all your homies how bad ass you are?

            You are pathetic. Go back to school and learn something so you don’t become a drain on society and continue to embarrass yourself and give your culture a bad name.

    I live in Elysian Heights, and around 9:30-10pm last night, there was a helicopter circling the area for quite some time. Wonder if they’re connected. Anyone else hear/see it?

  4. Eric Zamarripa was my nephew my Pride and Joy…..for all you folks who didn’t know Eric let me enlighten your narrow minds that are being fed by trash talking idiots who know nothing about this situation……first LAPD has been telling lies themselves to make theselves look better, they are the raunchiest of the raunch!!!! they talk about crooks, they need to look in the mirror first…..for all the rumors that are floating around, get the facts before opening your big mouths….Eric had a Heart of Gold and all that knew him would tell you the same thing…..Bias yes I am I know the real Eric, not the monster you people are trying to make him out to be…….BACK OFF PEOPLE, LET ERIC REST IN PEACE ONCE AND FOR ALL…quit bringing up his name everytime there’s a problem in Echo Park…..

      Yeah. Keep looking for sympathy for your gang banger nephew. I’m sure you’ll get it here.

      Knowing your nephew was a gang member, what did you do to intervene? I’d bet dollars to dough nuts you did nothing! So YOU are as much responsible for his death as the dude that pulled the trigger. Go look in the mirror next time you want to point a finger.

      • LET’S GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT GRAHM WELLINGTON…ONCE AGAIN YOU NARROW MINDED PEOPLE KNOW NOTHING…..ERIC WAS NO LONGER AFFILIATED WITH GANG BANGING WHEN HE WAS GUNNED DOWN….HE WAS IN HIS OUN YARD WITH HIS WIFE AND BOYS WHEN HE WAS ATTACKED…..DON’T GO POINTING FINGERS WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW SQUAT…..SYMPATHY I AM NOT LOOKING FOR ESPECIALLY FROM PUNKS LIKE YOU…..YOU OBVIOUSLY WANT TO BELIEVE THE WORST IN PEOPLE, WELL THAT SPEAKS VOULMES OF THE KIND OF PERSON YOU ARE……GEE MAY THIS NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER BECAUSE “STUPIDITY” CAN ALSO GET YOU KILLED………………………

        • Grahm Wellington

          If stupidity could get you killed, you’d be dead a long time ago.

          Once a gang member always a gang member. Isn’t that the mantra? I tell you WHAT I KNOW, Cat. The fewer the bangers the better this neighborhood has become. 22 years in EP and I’ve waited far to long to see the likes of your nephew go buh-bye!

          It’s just getting better and better and better….
