The planned press conference at the site of Saturday’s shooting in Monrovia didn’t pan out. Organizers were unable to get any support. And when TV crews didnt’ show, organizers told our reporter and photographer that there would be no press conference until the “real media” arrived.
Almost as soon as the SGV Tribune PSN photographer took off, city spokesman Dick Singer arrived on the scene and apparently engaged in an argument with one of the “press conference” organizers. No details on the nature of the argument or what else happened out there.
*The argument was over whether or not the shooting victim was a gang member or not. A cop apparently stepped in and Dick Singer got into his car and drove off, reporter Nate McIntire said.
