Man Shot after Confronting Tagger NR11305rf

Los Angeles. Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Mission Area gang detectives are looking for two to three suspects involved in a gang-related shooting last month. On June 18, 2011, shortly after 8 pm, an 18-year-old Hispanic male left an apartment complex in the 8400 block of Langdon Avenue in North Hills and confronted a suspect who was vandalizing the front of an apartment building. While he was speaking with the tagger, a second suspect approached him and began shooting at him with an unknown caliber handgun, striking him in the torso. The victim then took cover behind a cement planter, and the two suspects ran to a waiting truck and left the area. Both the victim and the suspects are believed to be gang members. The suspects are described as follows: Suspect one, who shot the victim, is described as a 20- to 25-year-old Hispanic male with a shaved head. He stands between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 225 pounds. Suspect two, who was tagging the apartment building, is described as a 17- to 20-year-old Hispanic male with black hair. He stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. The third suspect was driving the truck in which all three suspects left the scene. He is described only as a Hispanic male. At the time of the incident, the victim was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. He is now listed in stable condition. **Video surveillance footage showing the suspects and their truck is available at www.lapdtv …
