A story for every victim

Martin Haro, 25

Martin Haro, a 25-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Friday, Feb. 11, in the 2100 block of East Bliss Street in Willowbrook, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

The shooting was reported in the backyard of a home about 8:45 p.m., Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said.

Two other victims, Angel Jimenez, 25, and Luis Jimenez, 26, were pronounced dead at the scene. Coroner’s records show both men died from several gunshot wounds, while Haro died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Another victim, Anthony Jimenez, 24, was taken to St. Francis Medical Center and underwent surgery. He later died from several gunshot wounds.

The Jimenez's were brothers and Haro was their cousin, according to a coroner's investigator who declined to be identified.

During the investigation, authorities learned two Latinos were seen fleeing the area in a black sports utility vehicle after the shooting but it's unknown whether the car was related to the killings.

Lt. Don Slawson said the incident is believed to be gang-related.

Anyone with information is urged to call homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
