A story for every victim

Spencer Fabian Herrera, 29

Spencer Herrera, a 29-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Sunday, July 26, in the 12600 block of Pierce Street in Pacoima, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Patrol officers from the Los Angeles Police Department Foothill Division received a call about a shooting at 5:45 a.m. When they arrived, they found Muro and Spencer Herrera, a 29-year-old Latino, with gunshot wounds.

Both men were taken to local hospitals. Herrera was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m., according to coroner’s records.

The men were standing on the sidewalk outside the apartment building where Herrera lived when they were shot, Det. Michael Berretta said.

Berretta said investigators were still trying to determine how the men were connected and why they were shot.

No weapons were found at the scene, and there is no evidence that the men shot each other, he said.

Investigators can’t confirm news reports that a third man was talking to Muro and Herrera before he pulled out a gun and shot them both, Berretta said.

“We’re aware of those reports, but we don’t know if there was a third, fourth or fifth party yet,” Berretta said. “We have no suspect information, and we don’t know what the motivation was at this point.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact homicide Det. Armijo or Det. Robinson at (818) 834-3115. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
