I don't care how wonderful the school is. As long as there are folks that carry guns around that neighborhood and do not mind shooting people, you do not want to be anywhere around there.
OK Nogales is a great school, now get the heck out of there before you get killed. You shouldn't have to take your life into your hands to attend that school or be in that neighboorhood.

Many of these people who say that that area of west covina is safe and alright, are the ones who are going to watch their children grow up to a dimly lit future.

That area is such a dump. Shooting all the time. Caused by all the Mexicans that live there.
Really too bad but so predictable.
Get rid of the Mexicans and get rid of the problems.

west covina was a nice place to live during the 80's. we use to live at sunset palms at corner of sunset and hacienda when that gated community was built from an abandoned strawberry farm. we shop at the shopping center when max/albertson and the big hardware store was still there. but then the people started moving in that area from nearby baldwin park and sent their kids to WC edison school. we hear gunshot most of the night, graffity in the walls, and robbery at the shopping center. then hardware,sports/fishing store and max close down and replaced by used clothing, pawn shop and mexican store. edison stopped giving free laptop to WC school because of it being stolen. so we moved to the new built gated area in sicamore (shakespeare and nogales) near nogales highschool, first it was nice except for the train horn that you hear at night. Then the problem started when the gangmembers from the school started climbing the walls and hang out in the gated community childrens park and leave their drugs and graffity there. my son who joined the band when he transfered to NHS was told to join the gang for his protection from another gangs there. he told me each race has its own gang over there. thats when i decided to put my kid on a lottery to transfer him to walnut district. but was told by walnut that rowland school district forbid them to accept applicant from WC. so we decided to put the house on sale at a lost to move to walnut. i still go to nogales highschool swapmeet to support the school police there and saw the candles and flower where that shooting happened. West covina and WCHS has a lot of fund from its big shopping malls and swapmeet to fight these crimes compared to Walnut city and seems that they are incapable. I wonder why?

Very stupid ! Then you know that Mexicans killed and most of the Mayas and stole their land. So why dont you go back to Spain and give the Mayan's, which are still alive their land back. It's America now so deal with it ! If you don't like America or you think they stole your land, then go back to wherever the hell you came from. I think this story has nothing to do with race.

WEST COVINA - Authorities said Friday they are looking for two suspects in connection with a Feb. 10 shootout that left a Bestway Market employee dead.
Walter Alfredo Zomoza, 19, of La Puente, was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest when he and another man exchanged gunfire outside the Bestway market, police said.
Zomoza and two juvenile gang members confronted two men at a gas station near the market at Nogales Street and La Puente Road, Los Angeles County sheriff's Detective Raymond Lugo said.
At least one of the gang members took out a hand gun, prompting one of the other men, a 23-year-old Marine on inactive reserve, to pull out his own handgun, Lugo said.
Witnesses in the area at the time reported hearing four to five gunshots.
The Marine was shot but survived. A veteran of two tours of Iraq, he was taken to a local hospital by his friend and treated for a gunshot wound to the torso, Lugo said.
The Marine has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
Zomoza, a produce worker at the market, was also shot. He and the unidentified teen gang members ran through the shopping center, police said. Zomoza collapsed in front of one of the stores and was taken to a local hospital, where he died.
"His two friends left him there and continued running from the scene," Lugo said. "Both suspects left the state for several weeks but have returned to the Los Angeles area."
At least one of the suspects is a former Nogales High School student, he said.
A female employee at the Bestway market said homicide detectives had indicated that they believed Zomoza had been targeted for some time, she said.
The suspects are still at large. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at3238905500.

I graduated from Nogales in 1997. I graduated with a 3.00 GPA and was involved in Fashion, Child Development Classes, Agricultural, French classes. I went on to college and received My AA in Merchandise Marketin, and a BA in Business Administration, and I continue to go to school. Nogales was not a bad school at all. I had wonderful teachers, and when I was there Mr. Blanco was the Principal, and he cleaned up the place quite a bit. It's not where you come from, but where you end up in life. And my mother and father were very much involved in everything my sister and I did. Don't blame your kids problems on the schools, blame them on yourself. Teachers responsibility is not to raise your children, but to teach them life learning skills to continue with school, but its seems that the problem begins at home. We work and half the time we are dealing with discipline problems, because parents are not doing their job teaching them to respect their elders. Therefore, check yourself before you throw the first stone.

that shooting had nothing to do with the school anyone can go to that school and be successful instead parents should raise their kids right and teach them to be above the influence instead of blaming the neighborhood

Actually I live in Walnut. This rag keeps saying La Puente, but I do not mind. I live about 3 miles East of where this shooting occurred.
You do not see this happen at Walnut HS. That is becuase there are asians at WHS not Mexicans. I know asians have gangs, but I have never heard of a shootout at Walnut High.
These idiots that have shoot outs at Nogales, just serve to make their race, school, neighborhood look like a joke.
Sorry, may be racist but a bullet is a bullet and idiots are idiots. Just the truth.
Vito
actually your wrong ol uncle vito, there are a hundreds of mexicans at whs. and there have been shootings there too. i heard of a few when i went there in the 90's. there was even a walnut gang that was present there. i think its a lot better now, but whs is not only asian. whites blacks indians and latinos all go there. so get your facts straight old man.

Even though this was 2 years ago I have to say, Nogales isn't a bad school at all. Waaaay better than Rowland Highschool. NHS has more activities and fun than RHS! I live 5minutes away from Nogales and I really want to go there. But since the shooting that occured and gangs by the entrance at the school, my parents said Hell No! And sent me to stupid Rowland. Filled with asians and ugh! No racial but damn. I'm a Freshman and I go to Rowland and I saw Fuckk Rowland, Nogales all the way!!!

Rotten useless gang punks and their no-good parents are devastating our communities. Seems every day I hear about a handful of them getting rubbed out or sentenced to a cage for life. Only 50,000 more of them to go.
