(Aug. 8, 2016) -- At a press availability at midday Monday (Aug. 8), LBPD Sgt. Robert Woods said there are no gang ties known at present to the fatal shooting of Carina Mancera, 26, and her daughter, Jennabel Anaya, 4, on Saturday night (Aug. 6) at the corner of 9th St./Locust Ave.

Sgt. Robert Woods said officers have canvassed the neighborhood and spoken with as many people as possible. He strongly urged members of the public to come forward if they have any information or know of anything related to what happened.

Sgt. Woods said the victims were unloading their car after going shopping and were walking to their residence when they were cut down for no apparent reason. After shooting the mother and daughter, the shooter allegedly shot at daughter's father, but missed, and fled eastbound [toward LB Blvd.] Woods said.

Sgt. Woods added that there's insufficient evidence to indicate what took place was an ambush directed at the specific victims, but he indicated they were shot at close range.

Our family is heartbroken with this tragic event, and we hope that you can help us give these two beautiful souls a graceful resting place.
