Northeast Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) Operations Central Bureau Homicide (OCBH) are seeking the public's assistance in identifying the suspect or suspects responsible for the shooting that resulted in the death of one victim and injuring another.

On January 25, 2021, uniformed officers assigned to Northeast Division patrol responded to an "Ambulance shooting just occurred" call for service in the 700 block of N. Avenue 50. The responding officers located two victims of a shooting who were seated inside of their vehicle that had come to a stop at the intersection of Avenue 50 and Milo Terrace. Detectives from OCBH also responded to the crime scene, assumed investigative responsibility, and are attempting to identify a motive for this murder. This appears to be an isolated incident with no known motive.

The victims are two adults identified as Angel Carachure and his daughter Cynthia Carachure.

His daughter, Ms. Cynthia Carachure, was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to survive.
