  1. For what it is worth, there were many unreported killings in Atwater over the years. I used to live there and experienced drive-by shootings and knew of at least two murderers. If we really knew what is going we would all be too scared to leave the house.

  2. Interesting this event doesn’t get the attention a bike theft and two wounded victims gets.
    No media on the murder. And 2nd shooting in same area in a couple of weeks.

  3. According to Crime Mapping, there has been a string of rapes in NELA from Atwater Village to Eagle Rock in the last couple of months and I’ve yet to see any reports or media attention. Very scary!

    • The Hyperion bridge was the scene of many sexual assaults and rapes for many years in the 90s and 2000s. I’ve always been weary of that area.

  4. The article THINKS it may be a gang killing of an Armenia across the street from Armenian businesses the Sepan banquet hall and the Sepan fast food? Ya think?

    • I still don’t understand why no information has come forward. I see there were flares on the street , there’s no memorial, typical these days, just don’t get it. Almost like it didn’t happen.
