Police Arrest Man In Harbor Gateway Triple Homicide
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Police arrested a man on Saturday suspected of shooting and killing three people in the Harbor Gateway area of Los Angeles.
Authorities believe that Narada Brooks, a 28-year-old black male, acted alone in the shooting, the LAPD said.
Police found Brooks in an apartment around 8 p.m. on Friday night, and he gave up without a fight, authorities said.
The shooting, which also wounded one person, happened around 5:30 a.m. on Friday at an apartment building in the 1600 block of West 205th Street.
When officers arrived, they found one man who had been shot to death on a stairwell, LAPD Sgt. Rudy Lopez said.
They entered an apartment and found two additional male victims deceased.
All three victims were African-American men between 20 and 30 years old, Lopez said.
A fourth man who was shot in the leg was located by officers a short distance away at Western Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard.
He was treated by paramedics and transported to a local hospital.
“He’s being detained now for his involvement in this incident,” Lopez said.
Based on witness accounts, police said it appeared all the people involved were acquaintances.
“There was a disturbance inside the location when the shooting occurred,” Lopez said. “It does not appear that this was race-related or gang-related.”
Police don’t yet know the motive of the shooting.
