3 San Fernando Valley men charged in shooting death

first_img“He’s sitting in the car stopped in the street, waiting for his friend to return to the car,” said Los Angeles Police Department Detective Terry Keyzer. After Pacheco’s friend returned to the car, they drove off and soon after suspected they were being followed, Keyzer said. After awhile “they believe they’re no longer being followed,” Keyzer said. “They park and another car pulls up. A male black gets out and shoots (Pacheco) multiple times.” Pacheco, whose hometown was not released, was Latino and all three men charged are black, but Keyzer said the incident was neither gang-related or a hate crime. “It appears to be a chance meeting, maybe a disrespect issue … The motive is unknown, but it could have just been an argument,” Keyzer said. NORTH HILLS – Prosecutors have charged three San Fernando Valley men with murder in connection with the shooting death of a 19-year old man, authorities said. The charges follow the weekend arrests of Michael Brown, 23, and Edward Arch, 20, both of North Hills. Fredrick Thomas, 21, of Lake View Terrace was arrested Thursday. Police would not say who the suspected gunman is. The men are accused of killing Dennys Pacheco, who was shot and killed the afternoon of May 4 after he and a female companion drove to a North Hills neighborhood. While Pacheco’s friend went into a nearby residence, Pacheco remained in his car and somehow got into an argument with several men, police said.
