Terapeutas de duelo están presentes en la preparatoria Academias de Aprendizaje Sotomayor, donde los estudiantes regresaron a clase tras la muerte de dos compañeros de clase el fin de semana, cuyos cuerpos fueron recuperados del río de Los Ángeles cerca de Cypress Park.

La oficina del forense identificó a los chicos como Carlos Jovel, 16, y Gustavo Ramírez, 15. Las autopsias están pendientes.

La desaparición de los jóvenes el viernes provocó una búsqueda en la zona de División Street y San Fernando Road. Los dos adolescentes estaban en un grupo de cuatro personas que fueron al río después de la escuela. Uno cayó en el agua y otro se cree que saltó tras él, dijeron testigos.

A young man was in custody Wednesday for allegedly shooting a woman who was found dead in a car in the Glassell Park area.

Alexis Madera, 18, was booked on suspicion of murder and was being held on $1 million bail, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

The body 31-year-old Desiree Ramirez of Los Angeles was discovered about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday in a vehicle parked in the driveway of a home in the 3200 block of Isabel Drive. She had been shot in the upper body.

Madera was arrested on Tuesday afternoon.

Police did not offer a motive for the crime.

John Kavanaugh, 80, said the neighborhood where he’s lived most of his life has been plagued by violence.

“I heard nothing overnight, but that’s nothing unusual because almost constantly we have problems in this area, all the time,” he said Tuesday. “We do not have control of our community here.”

It was the fourth unrelated shooting death in Glassell Park in 10 days, according to Los Angeles police.

Northeast Division police Capt. Jeffrey Bert said Tuesday that the department takes the shootings seriously, closing the area for several hours while police, and an airship searched the area for a suspect.
