Melissa Paul, 16
The Franklin High School student was walking with two other teenagers when the Latino suspects rolled up in a car and asked their gang affiliation, then fired. Police arrived to find Paul wounded, her friends trying to help her. She died later at County-USC Medical Center. Arrests were made late last week but charges have not been filed. LAPD Northeast detectives seek any leads or witnesses. Call (213) 847-4261.
Update: LAPD Northeast detectives have cleared this case. At least one juvenile was among the Latino suspects.
