News & Notes:

  • The fatal shooting outside a Silver Lake area Del Taco on Thursday was connected to a dispute between two men who had attended a graduation ceremony at King Middle School, reports NBC4.  Police, however, are still investigating the cause of the shooting.
  • Much of the treated water that now keeps the L.A. River flowing would be diverted into underground basins under a plan being contemplated by city agencies, according to the Daily News. The diversion would substantially lower water levels in the river even as city officials pursue a $1 billion plan to revitalize the channel between Griffith Park and downtown for recreational uses. “Maybe 60 years from now we won’t be kayaking on the river,” said Mike Antos, who leads the Los Angeles Basin Water Augmentation Study. “We’ll be mountain biking.”
