View Larger Map

Detectives with the L.A. County Sheriff Department tonight were investigating the fatal shooting of a male juvenile in East Los Angeles. The shooting took place at about 9 p.m. in the 900 block of Fraser Street near Whittier Boulevard, according to preliminary information released by the department. The victim died after being transported at a hospital. There was no information available about the suspects or the cause of the shooting.

* Update:  Police said a second male juvenile was also shot but he survived what maybe a gang-related shooting.  The two victims and another male, who was not injured,  were standing outside a home when a gunman emerged from an SUV and opened fire, according to a LASD update. “The suspect returned to the SUV and the vehicle sped away westbound through an adjacent alley and out of view.”

The three males who came under fire are believed to be between the ages of 16 and 18.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call  the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.


  1. The posts talking about the asinine issue of Silver Lake receding from the “Eastside” all received a ton of comments from the self-described “true” Eastsiders. A juvenile shot and killed by gangbangers in your “Eastside” hood received…. no comment whatsoever. Really shows where people priorities lie. Sad. RIP.

  2. This is the worst part about the true Eastside. Kids killing other kids. It’s nothing new, it’s not as often as it used to be, but it’s still F’d.

    There has been a lot of shootings this year. There’s no easy answer on how to stop it, unlike the black and white issue of where the Eastside is and where it is not.

    • There are a lot of people on this planet fighting a real war – fighting against a dictatorship, corruption, mass genocide. Parents, neighbors, friends, and acquaintances should beat (as in physically beat) some sense into these little wannabe gang banger before they shoot someone. Only in America do we see a fake war being fought because kids have too much time on their hands….

      • Not exactly. Unfortunately these are not ‘wannabe’ gang bangers. They are the real deal out there shooting and killing each other.

        There are gangs all over the world, not just on LA’s eastside. It is not just in America that we see these fake wars going on. Look to almost any country on the planet and you will find something similar happening.

  3. RIP Franky <3 🙁

  4. Is this the “eastside”?

  5. Yes. No quotes necessary.

  6. I grew up a couple of blocks away from here and would always take nightly strolls down Whittier and pass this street, sucks man. It’s gotten a lot safer around this part of town but there are still instances like this one that messes everything up. My condolences to the family.

  7. R.I.P. Franky 2.21.14 ill never forget you homie .
