PALMDALE – A man was fatally wounded in the parking lot of a Palmdale apartment complex Sunday night and two juvenile males were seen running away, authorities said.
The shooting was reported around 8:50 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 19, in the 38000 block of Fifth Street East, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
Deputies responding to a gunshot victim call found a 32-year-old male unresponsive in the parking lot suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, according to the news release. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The victim’s name has not yet been released pending next of kin notification.
“There is no suspect or suspect vehicle description at this time; however, two juvenile Hispanic males were seen running away from the scene at the time of the shooting,” the news release states.
“We know the victim appeared to have left a local fast food place,” Lt. Derrick Alfred told sources at the scene. “He actually exited his vehicle prior to parking.”
The victim lived at the apartment complex, the lieutenant said.
Detectives were investigating whether the victim witnessed the juveniles breaking into vehicles or whether robbery was the motive for the shooting, Alfred said.
The gun used in the shooting was not recovered at the scene.
Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).

Almost the same spot were someone got killed when I was a kid…. There is a connection here indeed..
This article is about a deceased victim and two Hispanic juveniles seen running away. Their political affiliation isn’t mentioned, nor does this article say they are illegals. I hope they find them.
Probably thugs from Lancaster.
Because thugs don’t live in Palmdale right??? Lol.
Here’s a helpfull tip – Deport all the illegals.

And leave the killers here? When you decide to join the real world, you’re going to realize that the majority of Latinos who commit crimes in this state are US born citizens.

It took a while to figure out, but when Alby says “illegals” he means “everyone who isn’t white.” Just so you know what you are dealing with. I suspect that applies to most Trumpists, but this one has made it clear.
Usually the one whining about racism constantly is the actual racist.
You know like the one who uses an African American congressman’s name as a screen name.
As far as trying to call all Trump supporters racist, you can get bent on that one pal. Speak for yourself.
Beecee thinks that racists readily admit they are racists.
So, if they don’t admit it, they aren’t racists.
Yessirre. They don’t make dumb like that any more.
Example. Trump is a racist. Has he ever admitted he’s a racist, Beecee?

I was using Tim Scott as a screen bane before he was a senator. Not before he was African American, and not before pretty much all racists followed the call to the Republican “big tent” where they let racists be racists so long as they can count on their votes. At this point everyone with a shred of decency has left the “big tent” to them and moved on.

Now if only you had a clue about how it is…
I, too, am a proud American Mutt.
