  1. I spoke to one of the cops and think he said a car accident was also involved. I someone was shot and then crashed their car, but am not sure.

    • Can you scumbags hurry up and kill each other off already?

    • Enter the MB Murder Block Montana & Allesandro at your own risk come out in a body bag CRAZYS13

    • Another young Latino life wasted over nothing, It’ll probably be commemorated with yet another memorial of Hot Cheetos and tallboys as a tribute to his accomplishments. We can do so much better as a community.


      If you boys think this is somehow heroic behavior, you may be too far gone for anyone to speak logic to you and have it make sense. All we can do is stand back, watch you kill each other and have pity on you…much in the same way we pity those radical muslims who were sold a similar bill of goods from their leaders. For the muslims, they are promised 70 virgins (in heaven – whilst you are dead dead dead) for their martyrdom. What are your leaders telling you your life is worth… after YOU are dead dead dead?

      • They think they’re going to heaven with Jesus and all the dead gangsters to eat cheetos

      • they don’t take into consideration what they do to the mothers and children that lost their sons or fathers. its over a stupid turf. they speak all this b.s but when it is their turn, how sympathic will their families be then. it will be alittle to late. it sucks you guys killing each other over turf where you don’t own. and also killing eachother when we already have to worry about terrorism.

    • Yo, dudes. What is the point in belonging to a group where the only outcome is your get sent to jail, or you get shot and killed? You see all those other kids your age walking down Sunset and going to the Echo to see shows, or just hanging out at the lake? They’re not gonna die, and they’ve figured out how to find like minded people to hang out with without violence being involved.

      Y’all aren’t dumb. You clearly know to come to the Eastsider to blast off about your dead homies. Give it up already, go to school and do something meaningful with your life. Volunteer at 826LA. Something!

  3. I herd the gunshots through the phone while conversating with a friend that lives inthe area

  4. These EXP or whoever retards have a death wish, let em go at it. They’re so moronic they don’t realize they’re just doing the dirty work themselves that everyone else is wishing for.

    • voice of reason you call yourself?? your comment was the most moronic comment made. what everyone else wishes for? wow.. no what I think everyone wishes for is that these young gentlemen do something productive with their lives. that’s what a lot of us wish.

  5. Rest in piece Oscar sandoval ?

  6. Here we go again, When are we going to catch all these local terrorists? They could easily hit an innocent bystander…

  7. Any man’s death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,

    No Man Is An Island

    John Donne

    No man is an island,
    Entire of itself,
    Every man is a piece of the continent,
    A part of the main.
    If a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less.
    As well as if a promontory were.
    As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
    Or of thine own were:
    Any man’s death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    • get off the library computer!

      • Stop gentrification

        He’s on the free WiFi on Starbucks, thank you very much….

        • Stop gentrification

          You guys really want to see a problem and a issue you whiteys seem to be ignoring… go on megans law website and see who’s really living around you or with you…. sip some coffee on that…

          • @Stop gentrification

            Hey what do you know, I found your dad on that site.

          • Stop gentrification

            Yeah, I didn’t think you would take me seriously on having a bunch of child molesters around you. The Greek always liked in the butt as kids. That’s why you gringos act funny…

          • because all white people are descended from greeks? go back to school. and no chicano studies for you!

        • I don’t believe they have a Starbucks in Fontana yet?

          • Stop gentrification

            That’s not even funny bro. Try again.

          • It’s hilarious, he can’t afford to live in echo park anymore because his broke unskilled ass got gentrified out to Fontana!

          • Stop gentrification

            I didn’t realize making pottery was a skill. What’s funny is the look on your faces when the housing market goes bad again and your left with a fucked up deal in a city full of crime wave. By the way tell your uncle to move his r.v. on fig. Cedillo is about to ban them hipster mobiles….

          • you are so bitter about white people moving in to “your neighborhood” that you are hoping for a real estate market crash and a horrible crime wave? you don’t think that’s going to also affect abuelo and abuela who were smart enough to buy their home 50 years ago for dirt cheap and are counting on it for their retirement?

    • Cut it out u foos ain’t ck hahah..

    • Hahaha tampons you foos funny come in & lets Cee if u make it out and if u do make it out probably in a body bag VARRIO CRAZYS 13 MBST expK tstK ftrK lmlK n the rest. The streets is talking Cee Rifa all day baaabyyy!!!!

      • did a cat walk on your laptop? are you just mashing the keyboard typing random letters? why cant you even spell in spanish? it’s barrio not varrio, and that’s coming from a white person who took spanish in middle school

        • Stop gentrification

          Lol.. dumb ass. That’s your problem. Viva the kkk

        • Stop gentrification

          I’m not hoping the market crashes. It’s not a matter of if, but when. And the abuelitas are not on line writing racist rants or hating or judging their neighbors. It’s you guys. I see it like this. You have the fuck you attitude, I have the fuck you too attitude. And for those of us who own a home. We appreciate the fact our property value is going up. It’s you dummies over paying. Your bragging on paying a 700,000$ house in highland park that sits on 1300 sq. Ft. Lot…. pendejos….. the investors are raping you guys. You see a white picket fence and you believe your house is on the little Prairie…

          • Stop gentrification

            And about the crime wave. Please read the north east lapd crime stats…

          • some hardcore crime wave breaking into mailboxes and stealing catalytic converters to pay for your dickies and nike cortez’s lmao. the great brown flight is well under way

          • The sketchy loans that caused the 2007 housing market crash are non-existent now. Everybody is paying cash and are way more well funded than you can possibly imagine. A 700sf house on a small lot is plenty of space for a New Yorker who is used to paying $3500 a month for a shoebox and can basically work from anywhere on their computer. You really don’t get it, do you.

          • What world would you rather live in? A clean diverse neighborhood that yes has a handful of douchey white people but also has a mix of latinos and everyone else and is free of graffiti, trash and crime and your grandma can sell her house for $800k? Or a 99.9% hispanic neighborhood full of crime graffiti and trash and your grandma’s house is worth nothing and your kids might join a gang or catch a stray bullet, but you are spared the horrific torture of having a few douchey white people around.

          • The market will slow but it will not crash, meaning prices won’t drop (at least not much) but rather remain stagnant for a time. The likelihood of another crash circa 2008 is about as likely as this shooting not being gang related.

        • did a cat walk on your laptop…. yuk yuk yuk

      • Stop story tellin cissys.

      • you really sound ignorant and stupid coming on a website to netbang. smh………… how would your family feel if this same thing happened to you and your mother or children see an ignorant person laughing at the death of their loved one… show some respect for the dead at least man.

  9. The number for LAPD Northeast Division Homicide Detectives is 323-344-5744. If anyone has any information about this crime, please call immediately. Do not give into fear. These gang-bangers are cowards and thrive on intimidation and harassment.

    Also, the LAPD detectives will be alerted that suspected gang members are posting in these forums. Hopefully some I.P numbers can be pulled and suspects can be tracked down.

    • Stop gentrification

      Don’t worry. Don’t you see they give plenty of information here. I used to call that dry snitching. Pendejos. Banging on line…

      • Stop gentrification

        But realize these are probably kids that are imitating what they see and hear on the streets. …

        • Stop gentrification

          I hope they realize the cops and the feds can trace back all these emails. Don’t cry on the next rico act… seriously all you dummies need to keep that shit off of websites….


      • Stop gentrification

        Well not that these dumb dumbs have admitted to anything but shoot out of the mouth… what they probably don’t know all that hot air can get used against them in a rico act… not every kid here running their mouth actually goes out and breaks a crime…

        • Beverly D'Angeleno

          If a murderer can be identified via network theory beginning from a link found in a meaningless forum posting, would you have any problems with that?

          • Stop gentrification

            If a murderer admits to a crime on line then he deserves to get the book thrown at him. But I can bet these guys Internet banging are not the ones actually committed these crimes..

  10. If you ask me as you can see the fighting that is happening even online is white against brown so LAPD needs too look into that it could be a serial killer or a hate crime against our fellow brown man #justsaying.

    • So you’re saying that the brown folks are actually trying to shoot white people, but their aim is just so terrible that they miss every single time and happen to hit each other instead?

      Cool story, bro!

    • Yes, your sound logic makes perfect sense. I will go ahead and disregard the posters above making claims of gang affiliation and rejoicing at the death of an alleged rival but rather cling to your obvious answer that there is a crazed caucasian vigilante prowling the streets, targeting “your fellow brown man”. Bravo, friend. Bravo.

  11. Ur moms snitching cissy

  12. The society is so ignorant that they judge all one race for what one committed. We are all guilty then!

  13. white , brown , black… we are all here and need to deal with living together. why is it that echo park residents have a problem with the whites? they aren’t bugging you. they don’t walk around in a group hitting up white power or starting crap with the brown crowd. to me its stupid that everyone is pointing the finger at the white race when its just simply friends who trusted each other are the ones turning on their own friends for whatever reason, who knows. but these gang members are dying in their own hood. come on it doesn’t take a genius to realize that they are turning on their own people and its the young ones they are killing before they can even get a chance to get out of that life style. it is really sad and really heart breaking for the parents of those children knowing theyre children will never come home
