A story for every victim

G'Teasha Elayne Fisher, 33

G’Teasha Elayne Fisher, a 33-year-old black woman, was fatally shot Wednesday, Sept. 7, in the 12900 block of Desmond Street in Pacoima, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Shortly before 5 p.m., officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division went to a home because of a call about an assault with a deadly weapon, according to a news release from the LAPD.

The officers found Fisher, who had been shot, in the living room, said LAPD Det. Dave Peteque. Another person had found her and called police.

Fisher was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 5:13 p.m., according to coroner’s records.

Peteque declined to say what led to the killing but said the woman’s boyfriend, Michael Jerome Parks, a 47-year-old black man, is the primary suspect.

Parks was charged with murder on Oct. 14, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

Prosecutors said that Parks persuaded Fisher to meet him at the home, then stabbed and shot her.

Parks then fled and was later arrested on suspicion of murder in Las Vegas. As of Nov. 4, Parks was in custody in Los Angeles County, according to online court records.

Prosecutors said Parks has previously been convicted of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and several other felonies, including possession of cocaine for sale.

Parks faces six counts of assault with a deadly weapon for an incident on July 7 in which prosecutors say he rammed his vehicle into another car three times while a passenger and his 5-year-old son were in the vehicle, according to prosecutors. The incident is not related to Fisher's killing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Peteque at (818) 374-1934. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
