Drive-By in Daylight Claims Life of NoHo Teen
It happened yesterday afternoon in broad daylight; 14-year old Baudelio Guadalupe Jara was walking near Cantlay Street and Vineland Avenue, just north of Sherman Way in North Hollywood when he was "killed in an apparent drive-by shooting." The Daily News reports that Jara was fired at by the passenger of a "gray compact car," who issued several shots; the vehicle sped away and was "last seen traveling southbound on Vineland Avenue toward Sherman Way." Although some sections of North Hollywood see some violent activity, the fact that this took place midday is what is particularly striking. Sadly, Jara "had multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to a hospital, where he later died from his injuries." Police are working to piece together what happened and why, and ask that anyone who knows anything about the incident to call North Hollywood Homicide Detectives at (818) 623-4075 or (877) LAPD-24-7.
