By EGP and City News Service

21-year-old Ernesto Ramirez has been identified as the victim of a fatal shooting that took place Tuesday around 5 p.m. on the 5700 block of Benner Street, according to Sgt. Christopher Gomez. Ramirez died at a local hospital, according to Christopher No of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

The murder suspect, described as a man in his 20s, was seen fleeing up a set of public stairs that connects two streets, No said.

Northeast LAPD detectives investigating the crime have not determined a motive or if the shooting was gang related, Sgt. Christopher Gomez told EGP on Wednesday. Police are asking assistance from the public. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Dicroce or Yamada (323) 344-5744 during business hours; the watch commander at (323) 344-5701 during after hours; or by texing Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”
