    First of all the shooting was NOT Gang related… And the direction they ran in was not unknown, they ran out the alley into a car towards Cypress Park, ridiculous how quick to start rumors and put Names on blast of the victim but yet try cover the shooters…. Seems easy to say it was gang related and forget about it. I also thought they supposably already had a suspect in custody that same day??? Both boys were recent graduates with honors and Jose was recently enrolled at LA trade tech for automotive tech, his Friend had just graduated from the same trade, how about mentioning that??? & that’s what they were doing earlier that day, fixing the sisters Car and hanging out where they should have been Safe… Doing nothing out of the ordinary
