5-Year-Old Shot on Halloween Dies
Aaron Shannon Jr.
The shooting occurred on the 1000 block of East 84th Street (map) in South L.A.'s Green Meadows area, which, as the Times notes, is claimed by the Swans Bloods gang with the rival Kitchen Crip gang nearby. Shannon's family, however, has no gang ties, police said.
Jan Perry, the L.A. City Councilmember who represents the area, is asking for a $75,000 reward to help capture the suspects. Anyone with information about this homicide is urged to call the 77th Division Criminal Gang/Homicide Detectives at (213) 485-1383.
