Authorities Identify 4 Men Shot In Willowbrook

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities have released the names of four family members killed in a Los Angeles backyard in what investigators believe was a gang-related shooting.

KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz Reports

County coroner’s officials say brothers Luis Jimenez , Angel Jimenez , and Anthony Jimenez, and their cousin Martin Haro died in the Friday night shooting in the Willowbrook area. All four men were in their mid-20s.

Investigators say family members reported that they heard gunfire and found the victims shot on a backyard patio.

Two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene and the two others died later at a hospital.

Sheriff’s officials said Sunday they are trying to locate two unidentified men who were seen driving away from the area in a black sport utility vehicle.

Authorities have not identified any suspects but say the shooting is likely gang related.

  5. Gang-Related Shooting says:

    I don’t understand why families of Gang members say it’s wrong but when Gang members commit crimes on real innocent victims that somehow it’s justified. it’s okay for Gang members to commit crimes on real innocent victims but NOT okay for people to judge Gang members.

    Killing was Gang-related so why should people feel any sympathy for these criminals???

    1. CRYSTAL says:

      YOU CAN JUDGE GANG MEMBERS, JUST DON’T SAY ANYTHING STUPID ABOUT MY COUSINS CAUSE THEY WERE NOT IN A GANG, AND YOU DIDN’T KNOW THEM SO DON’T SAY NOTHING ABOUT THEM GOT IT…..!

      1. Weep for real victims & NOT gang members!!! says:

      1. Unknown1 says:

        I did not know these 4 young men, but I knew one of Anthony’s sister. I know that this was not a gang-related shooting! These young men had no gang ties…
        and for all these stupid people that don’t know what happened I suggest u keep ur OPINIONS to yourselves
        Don’t go by what the media says, but for facts! Its painful enough to know that people lose loved ones, but in this case 4 loved ones where taken away at once from a single family

        My sincere condolences go to the family!

        n Hope these killers rot in hell!!

  7. PAYBACK IS A BLEEP! says:

    WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND..!

  8. Golden Rule says:

    it’s okay for Gang members to hurt innocent victims but NEVER okay when they became targets.

  9. Joe says:

    You got it Crystal – I had a friend who was killed due to gang violence – my friend wasn’t in a gang, but the men who shot him mistaken him for another person – he was in the wrong place, at the wrong time – believe me, I know it hurts but the best thing for you to do is get off this website, get away from the negativity, and surround yourself with your loved-ones
    God bless and take care

    An eye for an eye.. Street justice – garbage time.

    This gang’s in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard, and the Jell-O’s jigglin’!

  11. julie hernandez says:

    may your cousins rest in peace. and so what if they were gang members, they were still human.. we all make mastakes in life, and we all change. they were all so young my heart and prayers go out to your familey…….

  12. julie hernandez says:

    to all those who have nothing better to do but make cruel remarks. you need to keep your mouth shut, because you never know it can happen to you or your familey. your probally so hateful that you dont even know how to have compassion for others. i feel very sorry for people like you……

  13. luisriosjr says:

    They weren’t gang members.
    I thought the younger Luis was killed but his older uncle was the one who was shot. So sad.

  14. Corina says:

    Now because the news says they were gang members that gives all of you the right to make these sort of comments. Did it every occur to you that they were referrencing the SHOOTERS!? No one deserves what happend… You all dont know, never got the CHANCE to know these guys. At the end of the day they all have families, lord forbid an incident happens to your family like this and people take their innocent lives. These guys were enjoying an afternoon with their family on THEIR property, keep that in mind. They were someones CHILDREN! My heart goes out to Alex and the Jimenez family, much love out of El Paso.

  15. CB says:

    The news likes to make the news more juicer than it is so people will listen to it. I know for a fact that you can’t always believe all that you read, in the papers, or see on tv. Just try to remember the game most people played as kids called telephone… where you say one thing and see how much it changes by the time it gets threw a bunch of people. This is the same thing. The story gets changed to “fit” the storytellers perspective of the story. I wish the family the best…

  16. Juliette Jimenez says:

    For all of you out there saying four less gang members off the streets, you need to stop judging two of the were my brothers and they had absolutely nothing to do with gangs. our family is suffering a loss get a life and stop judging my brothers were victims of a sense less crime and not gang members put yourselves in our shoes, try and imagine how hard it is to lose 4 members of your family at the same time. idiots who are posting rude comments.

  17. Enough says:

    That’s enough with the wrong information. This explanation goes to the people stuck on the gang related topic. Yes, it was gang related due to the fact that two of the deceased were comfirmed gang members. Do keep in mind though that the other two deceased were not gang members nor were affiliated in any way with gang members other than the fact that they lived in the same home as the gang members. Living together with gang members that are related to you by blood does not automatically make you a member also, don’t be ignorant. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time only appplies to two of the victims so please do not generalize this incident as everyone was involved with gangs so that’s why it’s called gang related shooting. It’s easy to judge and gossip but when the facts are given to you then you know you put your foot in your mouth. Do not speak about what you do not know, it just makes you look and sound stupid. Once again, it was called a gang related shooting because two of the four deceased were confirmed gang members. The other two were good, caring, hard-working men that did not move out of their home away from the gang members because they wanted to take care of their grandparents that also lived with them. These are the facts and do with them as you like but I needed to clarify this as some of you seem confused as to what really happened. God bless them for taking care and loving their grandparents being that they gave their life doing so.
