It Came from the '90s
Police searched today for two men who carjacked a car in North Hills, leaving one man dead and two others hurt. The men on Sunday night approached a Toyota Camry that had pulled to the side of Sepulveda Boulevard, near Chase Street, because one of the occupants felt ill, Detective Gary Barthelmess said.
"Carjackings have become less common than they once were, Barthelmess said.
"We haven't had this kind of an incident in quite some time," he said. "Carjackings are on a decline, and a carjacking with a violent conclusion is rare."
Barthelmess credited "the police doing their job" for the decline and said, "Criminals don't live in a vacuum."
