Good news regarding last week's LAPD shootout in Glassell Park. The fourth and last suspect, a Northridge resident who was the driver of the suspected car, was arrested Monday in Granada Hills. It wasn't that hard either: "he was in the same vehicle police believe was used in the driveby," according to a report by the Daily News.

Last Thursday, a drive-by shooting occurred in the late morning, resulting in the death of a man who was holding his 2-year-old daughter. Marco Antonio Salas was shot 15 times and later died, all while the child was never hit.

Salas had just been shot nearby when the [plain-clothes] officers spotted the suspect's white Nissan and began following it. The Nissan suddenly stopped and Daniel Leon, 22, and Jose Angel Gomez, 18, jumped out and began shooting at officers, Leon with an AK-47 rifle and Gomez with a handgun, police said. [Daily News]
