Los Feliz Barricade Ends With No Sign Of OC Homicide Suspect

LOS FELIZ (CBSLA.com) – An Orange County homicide investigation prompted authorities to barricade a Los Feliz apartment complex Tuesday night, but no suspect was found.

Authorities surrounded the apartment complex in the area of Los Feliz Boulevard and Rodney Drive at about 8:30 p.m., evacuating the units in that building as well as surrounding homes, said Tustin police Lt. Bob Wright.

Wright said police were attempting to serve a search warrant related to the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Israel Corpus, who was gunned down around 4 p.m. on Sunday at an apartment complex in the 1700 block of Mitchell Avenue in Tustin.

Authorities made contact with someone inside the Los Feliz apartment around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday, but Wright said he would not classify the situation as a standoff, although a SWAT team was on hand.

At about 1 a.m. Wednesday, a Tustin police watch commander told CBS2 the situation was over and no suspect was taken into custody during the operation.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators told CBS2 Sunday that they believe there are gang ties between the shooter and the victim. The suspect has not been identified by police.
