LAPD Deputy Chief Charles Beck said in a press conference yesterday that the killer approached Kaitlyn, her six-year-old sister and her father Cesar while they were getting out of their car outside their apartment building in Baldwin Village on October 1st. Beck said it wasn't an accident or a case of Kaitlyn getting caught in a crossfire. Beck said the shooter intended to kill her. Police arrested one suspect who they believe was an accomplice. They are now looking for 17-year-old Jonathan Banks, who they allege was the trigger man. Officers say they suspect Banks thought Cesar Avila was a member of a rival gang and then allegedly aimed his gun at Kaitlyn and shot her in the chest. There is a 50-thousand-dollar reward for Banks' arrest. They got the fucker but whatever punishment he gets wont be harsh enough SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- San Bernardino officials confirm an arrest has been made in the case of the 3-year-old girl gunned down in Baldwin Village two weeks ago. Police on Monday identified the suspect as Jonathan Durrell Banks and said he shot Kaitlyn Avila in the chest at point bank range, killing her intentionally -- a callous execution that went beyond even what gang members consider usual. The shooting occurred about 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 24. Cesar Avila and his daughters Kaitlyn, 3, and Kassey, 6, had just arrived at their home in the 4500 block of Pinafore Street after lunching at a McDonald's when a gunman walked up, shouted a gang slogan and opened fire, authorities said. Kaitlyn was killed and her father, a glass worker who appears to have been mistaken by the shooter for a gang rival, was critically wounded, according to police. Kassey witnessed the shooting, but was not hurt. Police said the gunman and his accomplice sped away in a gray Chevrolet Pacifica. The suspected getaway driver, Laron Lee Larrimore, 26, was arrested Friday afternoon at a motel in the 3500 block of Slauson Avenue by a joint LAPD-FBI task force, police said. "The arrest of the second suspect will calm tensions, alleviate the fears of residents over their safety and help promote community peace," Hutchinson said.
