An investigation by sheriff’s homicide detectives revealed that two male suspects approached the victims’ residence on foot and were seen talking to the boy, Hernandez said. The father, who was inside the home, ran outside when he heard gunshots and found his son lying wounded on the front lawn, Hernandez said. As the two assailants were running away, the boy’s father tried to apprehend them and was shot, he said. The suspects, described only as two males, were last seen running northbound on Downing Avenue, Hernandez said. “Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying the two suspects who fled from the scene,” said Fuchs. Anyone with information on the crime or the suspects is asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit at (323) 890-5500.
