IF it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a Duck. Rival Gangmembers dont take the tie to verify whether Mijo is a gangster or not. Mijo should have been at home. This all could have been avoided. Sad story.

there may be some justice for this boy...

ONTARIO - Law enforcement authorities raided an apartment complex in San Bernardino County, seeking a suspect in the fatal shooting Monday of a 17-year-old boy in Pico Rivera, but no arrests were made.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies and local police sought a suspect in Monday's gang-related shooting death of Robert Andrew Velasquez in Pico Rivera, but no arrests were made in the search for a suspect in the 1300 block of West Fifth Street in Ontario, police Sgt. David McBride.

The standoff stems from the Monday night killing of 17-year-old Robert Velazquez in the 4000 block of Zola Avenue in Pico Rivera.

The teen just walked his girlfriend home when someone in a sport utility vehicle drove by and started shooting. Velazquez was hit and died at the scene. The 18-year-old girlfriend wasn't injured.

So every1 here posting all this stuff about how it was a gang member that shot this guy..Has any1 here bother to look at his myspace page. All you can find out by looking at myspace. ya so this guy wasnt a tagger or gang member are you really sure. well what we do know is that he smoked pot and drank cheap malt liquor all while being on home studies and under age. Doesnt that speak on what type of kid he was. i guess just as bad as the shooters. If you're gonna judge might as well judge every1 involved

Explain the My Space web site this "Kid" advertised to the world about himself. I was about to donate to the funeral after today's newspaper article. But, I saw his My Space. I wonder now if he sold drugs? Maybe that's the connection?

I went to middle school with Robert. He was a great guy. He always knew how to make people laugh. I know he would never involve himself with the wrong crowd. Like I said, he was a good guy. It's horrible that he had to go at such a young age. I cannot believe that someone I used to sit next to in class and talk to everyday in middle school was killed. It's a complete tragedy... RIP Robert Velasquez, you will always be in our hearts and you will be missed<|3.

I knew rob he was a good kid and I loved him but he did hang out with the wrong crowd and dressed baggy you can find hundreds and hundreds of reasons and people to blame but the point is that he did not deserve to die no one does it doesn't matter why or what time he was walking the streets he should not have been shot he was no gang banger rob wouldn't hurt anyone all he did was make people laugh... we could all argue on this board about why rob was killed or what could have been done but it is what it is all we can do is move on and learn from this... _have respect for rob and his family and take all that shit somewhere else
