LAPD Captain speaks to neighborhood council

At last night's Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council meeting -- which went till past 11 p.m. -- Detective Morris and the Northeast Division's new commanding officer, Captain Perez, gave a brief update on the shooting of Michael Joseph Lezay on Baxter last Saturday.

According to our neighborhood representative, Christine Peters,

The young man, was shot once, fatally. There was no info on whether it was a turf war or an inside spat. Sadly, he had been recently inducted into the "EXP" Gang. Many who knew him and know his family are very upset that he became a victim of bad judgement. The investigation is still open and no new info is available.

Peters said that community members who want to discuss the shooting and other public safety issues can speak to reps from the LAPD and City staff at the "Positive Energy" monthly meeting tomorrow night (Thursday) at 6 p.m., at the Edendale Library.
