Police are looking for a gunman who fatally shot a 14-year-old boy during a street fight in Pacoima.

The shooting took place on in the 12700 block of Van Nuys Boulevard, near Glenoaks Boulevard, just after 8:30 p.m. Monday, according to a sergeant from the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Station.

According to witnesses, a group of boys were fighting on a sidewalk near the intersection. Just as the scuffle seemed to have ended, gunfire rang out and the boys fled -- except for the victim, who fell to the ground. Read more

Many folks would disagree with me, but I think it's time to get our military involved. This corner is a known terrorist block with deaths occuring on a regular basis. It's disgusting that a child can't even visit with friends without getting slain by some low-life who doesn't deserve to breath.

That is very unfair and i feel bad for the parents. BUT... why are these kids out on the street? Why don't they find something better to do? AND... Where are their parents?
AND these monikers like "SLASH", "SLIM", are you sure they're not gangsters? I think sometimes kids like to play with fire when they think they are hard.

KIDS....

THINK AGAIN, you haven't even lived half your lives yet and you think you know it all. Find something better to do so you can grow up to be somebody. NOT a low life, a jail bird, a hardcore good for nothing.

I've lived in Pacoima all my life and it saddens me to see kids on the street looking like "gangsters" and trearted like one.

Stay out of trouble and learn from others experiene and mistakes.

Tha's what I say where the hell are this kids parents. the only time you see them is when they come out in the news saying what a good kid they had but yet they allow them to be out in the streets as late as midnight and we are talking 13 year olds dressed like gangsters. if they're so good why are they out inthe streets tagging and killing eachother and alot of the times inocent victims. a 16 year old was shot to death and all I have to say I'm glad that It wasn't my kid getting killed by a lost bullet. I keep my kid ocupied.

You don't knopw what it is to have both parents lwork to have a roof over our heads and food on the table. Not all had an opportunity to go to school and be successful. Our kids try and most of the time there is no way of knowing who they play with at school and socialize at school. Not til you live the life or are in someone else's shoes do not critize but do something to help our community. No name above you dont have to be in gangs to die. You could be in the wrong place at the wrong time. People is so easy to critique others but you don't know what the situation is in there home. So help others that we don't all come from families with $$$ ot education.
So Bite your tongue and you may be lucky that you can afford to keep your child in busy and thank god for that, cause not everyione can selfish bastard...

F*#(K U - Pacoima91331
Hundreds and thousands of kids have successfully made it out of a sorry a@@ situation and even worst. Your a pathetic piece of sh1t with one hundred excuses for all issues in the ghetto or projects. YOur no better than the rest of these piece of crap gang members and criminals. Stop making excuses and promoting your kids to be little terrorist. You, like your kids, should be taken to a concentration camp, to work your a@@es off to pay back all the social services you steal from the city, the county, state, and feds . The community is tried of this gang banging crap. Be a responsible parent or stop opening your fat legs and pumping kids out like a street b1tch in heat. Everyone that promotes the Gangster life or the thug scene....f()(CU)k u
This is not part of our mexican culture, hertiage and never will be. Anyone that promotes this gang lifestyle needs to be taken out and shot.

Once again the police is looking for a gun man.This has been a routine crime profiling.Anyone getting tired of this?
The police knew this is a gang related crime.They are also prohibited by the law to start knocking on every gangs door step.So this lead us to bug hunting job.I'm sure cops are seek of this job. Politicians has no mean to fight crime has no business to be in State & City government.
