I guess you don't know how to read do you. You spread your hate, instead of being a good example of having compassion for a family who just lost a loved one to gang violence. Ignorant bastard!!!

Don't you have something better to do than try to cause additional pain to an already grieving family? God have mercy on you.

That is a terrible event that happened in a city where there has been so many killings in the past. Lets hope that the killer is captured as soon is possible, but I think this is a great tragedy. Now, there are people that seem to get happy about the tragedy of others, but once they live this kind of pain their whole point of view will change. That victim might have been any of us.

This is a tough one. I don't really blame the LASD as that area is filled with Cholos, and lowlives who dress and act like them but really aren't, so how are they supposed to really know the diferrence.

LASD Rocks.

On a side note; Buick is really starting to make nice cars. Check out the 2010 Lacrosse, it's awesome.

I personally knew Oscar Reyes from working Industry Station for nearly nine years. Oscar was not a gang member but lived in a gang infested neighborhood. Oscar had some personal demons he was dealing with earlier in his life but seemed to be changing his life around. Every time I patrolled passed the Reyes family house I would be greeted with respect and thankfulness for trying to make their neighborhood safer. The Reyes family are nice people who are a true representation of the City of La Puente. His mother is hardworking and the family has strong bonds. It is unfortunate that some cowards took Oscar's life. I can only hope the community gets involved and helps our detectives with some information. R.I.P. Oscar...

Expect another homicide to occur near San Angelo Park soon. Oscar was an innocent victim, but the boys from Ballista or Blackwood Puente will still make BG pay, the cycle of stupidity continues.
My mom moved from that exact area back to East LA about 8 years ago, the only difference she noted was the houses are smaller and there are places to walk in ELA.

I wonder if the victim was dressed down like a gang banger or had a shaved head, that might have invited the attack on him.

i work for the ambulance company who runs la puente. i doubt they got lost. they were probably stagging on AMAR. we dont just drive into a shooting call. we post out till we are radioed in by police that the scene is safe. regardless if we get there seconds after the shooting we are always last to get down. for our safety

I knew the victim he was a very caring man. He was one of a kind always smiling as his eyes would light up. He never harmed anyone and kept to himself. The person that did this was heartless and has no value for human life. Oscar will be truely missed by his family as well as his friends that loved him very much.

As for making BG pay, the reporter who wrote this article misprinted the gang that did this it wasn't Bassett Grande it was actually someone named Evil from "Valinda Flats" who is the nephew or son of a detective so you think he will get punished for this or go into pc?
