Attempted Murder Suspect Caught After Chatsworth High Locked Down

CHATSWORTH (CBS) — An attempted murder suspect has been taken into custody by police near Chatsworth High School.

The search followed a short foot pursuit after the suspect, described as armed and dangerous, was reported in the area of Limerick and Vintage and Merridy and Cozycroft at about 11 a.m., police said.

A perimeter was set up in the area of Mayall and Cozycroft.

The school was locked down as a precaution, Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Susan Cox said. The lockdown was lifted around 1 p.m. when the suspect was taken into custody.

The suspect was identified as Dejon Palmer, 19, of Los Angeles.

Palmer was booked on suspicion of attempted murder.

He is one of two suspects wanted in connection with an aggravated assault that occurred on November 10.

Palmer was recognized by a school police officer and tracked using a helicopter and police dogs, according to officer Karen Rayner.

  • ANNA

    Why do you Ignorant people automatically think that there looking for an illeagl

    • Gretchen

      Thank you Anna,because they are guilty of their own race. If they weren’t the one’s doing it then they wouldn’t be the one’s to blame.

    • ANNA

      What ever you know what i meant and i am legal

    • JeffD

      Technically if your parents are illegal you are an anchor baby. For those that don’t know what that means it is the kids of illegals that were born here and are granted citizenship but they will always be 2nd class citizens and not real americans. Hope they change the law and deem these kids illegal then deport them.

    • MARK


      • Tree

        There’s a suspected murderer and people are busy being ignorant saying it’s an illegal. Really? Grow up, mature, and get educated! Idiots. They probably work harder than others. Ignorants do nothing for the situation. Anyway, I hope we can get out soon and that they arrest the CORRECT person, no matter who it is! I have things to do as a LATINA.

    • Michelle


      Before you try to correct and belittle someone else on their grammar make sure you’re up to date with yours. You actually made more errors than Anna did; and you call yourself an American??? What is this world coming to.-shakes head-

    • finn mcgowan

      “they will always be 2nd class citizens and not real americans”

      Why should any kid who was born and raised in America be a “2nd class citizen”?

    • Noemi


      Your name is spelled Noemi. Look at that, I’m an illegal and I can spell your name better than you can.

    • gretchen

      Come to find out tonight on the news,it’s an “African American”,kid that did this.

  • SimonT and Brian Ginsburg

      it was pretty funny d:

  • lilly

    everyone is one facebook hahahha funny stuff

  • david

    “Naomi,” isn’t it a bit embarrassing to make grammatical errors while pointing out spelling errors? As an immigrant basher, I would think you would take pride in the national language. Here’s a hint: punctuation is your friend.

    You’re pathetic.

    • david

      Did you get that? Punctuation is your friend and illegals are your enemies. Don’t make me say it twice.

      • Michelle

        You must have mastered in English but definately not History.

    • Bob

      Um, as much as I would like it to be, English is not our national language. The U.S. has no official national language.

    • Laverne

      David-in your earlier comment, you said “who’s” instead of “whose”. So you have something to learn…probably many things. Ignorance should not be bliss…

  • lilly

    not anymore it looks like you guy are not liking your lockdown still remember when that other school went for 6 hours in lock down

  • benny rios

    i bet J hal smells liks BUD
