    Triple Attempted Murder, Xmas Eve, Area Olive/4th (1st district)

    (December 26, 2001) -- Three LB residents were shot on Christmas Eve while celebrating the holidays in the 400 block of Olive Avenue in the 1st Council district.

    Police responded to a shooting call at approximately 9:15 p.m. and found three men suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims were treated on scene by LBFD, then transported to a local hospital.

    LBPD says the victims were on the porch of a residence when the suspect allegedly approached the group and began arguing about a past disagreement with one of the victims. Police say the suspect left, then allegedly returned a short time later, firing numerous shots at the group from behind a parked vehicle; he allegedly fled the scene on foot after the shooting.

    One victim, age 17, was shot in the head; he was reported in critical condition. A 24 year old sustained a neck injury and a 21 year old had a stomach wound; they were reported in serious condition.

    LBPD has taken a suspect into custody who is being charged with attempted murder.

    Anyone with information about this crime is urged to contact Homicide Detectives Rochard Conant or Robert Erickson at (562) 570-7244.
