Police Investigate if L.A. County Prosecutor Tipped Off Gang Member to Witness’ East Hollywood Home Where 2 Were Shot
The court order obtained by a Los Angeles County prosecutor was clear: The gang member was required to stay away from a woman he was charged with assaulting, as well as several members of her family.
Weeks later, the gang member, Jonathan Quevedo, 34, allegedly opened fire outside the woman’s East Hollywood home, wounding two people including her relative, who was named in the protective order.
