One-Eyed Gang Member Arrested In Panorama City Double-Murder
PANORAMA CITY (CBSLA.com) — Police have arrested a one-eyed gang member wanted for the murder of two men outside a Panorama City 7-Eleven store.
Angel Santana was arrested Saturday at the Palms Motel on Sepulveda Boulevard after authorities followed up on a gang intelligence tip, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
Santana was wanted in the July 17 shooting that killed Deshawn Miles, 19, and 26-year-old Maron States. Another man, in his 40s, also suffered a gunshot wound to his leg.
A gang officer, who originally investigated the shooting, connected a witness’s description of a one-eyed shooter to Santana.
A tip led them to the motel Saturday where he was arrested for murder.
Santana is being held on $1 million bail.
One additional suspect was still outstanding in the double murder.
Anyone with information is urged to call Det. Gretchen Schultz, Mission Homicide Unit, at (818) 838-9951.
