    LA Cops Say Little Girl Was Targeted By Gangster
    (Los Angeles, CA) -- Los Angeles police say they believe three-year-old Kaitlyn Avila was shot intentionally at point blank range by a teenaged gang member possibly trying to "earn his stripes." 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.

    It doesn't even make me mad anymore. It just makes me tired and disgusted. I think I'm becoming a bitter man.

    I'm going to quote my brother on this one, "Stuff like this makes me think we need a Darth Vader, only he's good. You know, no mercy whatsoever."

    Seriously. What the fucking hell?!!??!?!?! Who the fuck on this hugeass earth thinks shooting a little sweet 3 year old girl in the head face to face is a brave or manly thing to do. I mean what gang on earth could honor that as an actual kill. I hope the gang doesnt like how that went down and beats him to death slowly.

    Cocksucker :rl:

    I'd love to personally kill every gang member on the face of the earth. And if their happens to be a gang under the face of the earth, you know, living in caves and whatnot, I'd kill them too. I don't care if they're a murderer/rapist or just a shoplifter, if they are a member of a serious gang, they deserve to be killed.

    It's pretty sad that it's a "tough guy" thing to be in a gang, when the entire premise of these gangs is having a bunch of other guys watching your back, because you're not man enough to fight someone yourself.

    I live in the northern panhandle of WV within an hour of DC, PA, MD and VA. We have not had any police officers killed around here but there is definitely gang activity and a serious drug problem.

    When I preordered my PS3 today I asked if they would be doing a midnight madness pick up type deal and one of the guys started telling me that when they launched the 360 a guy got beat to an inch of his life walking out of WalMart with it (in the same shopping center as the Gamestop) at midnight so they didn't know if they would do it or not. I just patted my hip and said there are solutions to that type of stuff.

    Maybe he could have seen it coming. When I'm on the street and I see someone walking towards me that looks shady my hand is at least on my backup piece in my pocket :dunno:.

    Perhaps but it seems unlikely. Most parents naturally move in front of their children if they think there is danger. It seems as though he never even got that far.

    Thanks man. I really like it out here. I still miss where I grew up, Annapolis, MD, but there is such a variety of things to do around here and you are not too far from several major cities.

    Slowly becoming a WV boy.
