Advisory

*UPDATE* #LASD Homicide Detectives Investigating Shooting Death of 1yr old Girl, 300blk N. Holly Av, Compton

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detectives responded to the 300 block of North Holly Avenue, Compton, to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a one year old female on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at approximately 7:00 p.m.

When homicide detectives arrived, they learned that Compton Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to the location regarding a “Gunshot victim” call. Upon their arrival, they found the victim, a female Black infant, suffering from a gunshot wound to her head.  Paramedics hadn’t arrived yet so deputies decided to take the child and drove her to a local hospital in their patrol car.  Doctors worked on the victim, but she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.      

Witnesses have described the suspects as two male blacks in a dark colored 4 door sedan. 

The shooting appears to be gang related.

The investigation is still ongoing.

There is no further information at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.  If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.
