Five shot at Norwalk house party

NORWALK — Five people were wounded at a party early Sunday when a man fired on a crowd with a shotgun, authorities said.
The incident occurred just before 2 a.m. in the 11200 block of Adoree Street, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. John Gannon said.
“(The shooter) fired four times into the crowd as people scattered and ran,” he said.
One of the victims, 19-year-old Jason Ramirez, was shot in the “upper torso” and was hospitalized in critical condition, Gannon said.
After undergoing surgery, he was reportedly in stable condition, said Sgt. Ralph Gama.
Four others suffered non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.
Aaron Rincoln, 20, was also shot in the upper torso and suffered a head injury, Gannon said. Elmer Saravia, 20, was wounded in his legs, James Wilkerson, 23, was shot in the leg and wrist and Elizabeth Ramos, 23, suffered a grazing wound to her head.
Two of the wounded found their own transportation to the hospital, Gannon said.
None of the victims were believed to be gang members, however, officials believe the shooter may have gang ties, Gama said.
Preliminary reports indicated that the shooter and victims were all at a party together prior to the attack, Gannon said.
A fight broke out and the suspect retrieved a 12-gauge shotgun from his vehicle, then opened fire into a group of people, he said.
The shooter was described as a Latino man about 18-24 years old, between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 230-250 pounds, Gannon said.
After the shooting, attacker fled in an unknown vehicle, officials said.
Witnesses could not provide a description of the shooter’s vehicle because they were all fleeing to avoid being shot, Gannon said.
“We do have leads that we’re following up on,” Gama said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Norwalk station at (562) 863-8711.

    Here we go again ………….
    “The shooter was described as a Latino man about 18-24 years old, between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 230-250 pounds, Gannon said”

    Why are the suspects usually short fat young latinos with shaved heads? The white and elderly and white, community members escape suspicion. But young, black and latino youth do not !!!!! I will tell you why, It’s because police psychology thrives and survives on the stereotype this means a sector of our society is being unfairly singled out and identified as suspects and shooters !!!!!!

    I have heard of cops and old white ladies involved in these type of shootings at parties. It happens often, I once had a friend of a friend of a friend tell another friend about this happening at his friend’s party.

    My question is, is this fair? Ask the young innocent latinos they say, hell nah. Ask the old and the white and the old, and they say, “sure…who cares, as long as they aren’t breaking any laws….why should they mind?” Global, national and local histories have demonstrated that the people who do the policing need policing the most, not ‘suspected’ latino gang members. And if we disagree, I suspect its because you on the side of the equation with corrupt cops who are involved in shotgun shootings at parties.
