Police answered a 911 call early Sunday morning and found two men and two women shot to death in the side yard of a home in the 17400 block of Devonshire Street that appears to be used as an unlicensed boarding facility of some kind. The victims, all of some unspecified Asian descent, appeared to be two women in their 20s, a man in his 30s and a man in his 40s. Police said it did not appear to be an execution-style slaying, but the victims were not robbed and may have been targeted.Daily News, Times
Media reports that the home is in a "quiet neighborhood" is kind of a laugher since that stretch of Devonshire Street is a major, high-traffic cross-Valley boulevard. Quiet it is not. They probably mean it's a low-crime area, which is true. Until these four killings, the LAPD's crime maps show just one homicide since July 1 on the Devonshire division's turf.
