Police are looking for a 16-to-17 year old female suspect in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old male in front of his home in Winnetka Wednesday evening.

The unnamed suspect fled in a green sport utility vehicle, said Los Angeles police Officer Karen Rayner

Police were called to the 6900 block of Cozycroft Avenue, one block north of Vanowen Street, at 6:10 p.m. on a shots fired report, Rayner said.

The victim — a high school soccer player — was hit at least three times and taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The victim — identified as Francisco Rodriguez — attended El Camino High and was the team’s starting goalkeeper.

The motive for the shooting was not known, Rayner said.

Francisco Rodriguez, 17, was shot to death Wednesday night in front of his home on Cozycroft Avenue in Winnetka.

A soccer teammate had just dropped the goalie off at his house after a game when a female reportedly came to the house and asked Rodriguez to come outside.

He was then shot three times before the suspect or suspects fled.

Ian Kogan, the team’s coach, told CBS2 and KCAL9′s Serene Branson, that the deceased was “just a great kid. Funny. Always cracking jokes. Fun to be around.”

He added, “I loved him. I truly loved him. Got to know him…he was a great kid. He meant well.”

FYI There are no White People anywhere near this area, This is right in the middle of the Ghetto, Which by the way is the entire San Fernando Valley with the exception of the very outskirts.

Sadly, as soon as I read "Los Angeles" that became my assumption.

How we went from Dragnet and The Brady Bunch to this current sorry state is a mystery only to liberals.

Find out if the victim was on the winning or losing team and they'll have their first clue as to motive.

I'm guessing he let in the losing goal for his team.

A better way to evaluate a neighborhood is to go to Greatschools.
http://www.greatschools.org/cgi-bin/ca/other/2409#toc

83% Latino
7% Asian
3% Black (they are growing in numbers fast)
3% White
2% Filipino
Students eligible for free breakfast, lunch and dinner: 87%
English learners: 56%

I saw an old episode of Dragnet recently. I'm guessing it was late '50's vintage. The crime under investigation was fraud in the door-to-door sale of magazine subscriptions. The "sales" people were impersonating a nurse or a marine veteran.

That was an interesting look at crime during the period. I then watched a new show called Bait Car. This shows LAPD in 2011 putting decoy bait cars on the street and waiting for them to be stolen. From the 30 minutes I spent with the show, it seems in 2011 pretty much every resident of LA will steal a car.

A lot has changed in the US and not a lot of it changed for the good.

I like that show. Sometimes there are people standing nearby that tell the thieves it's a bait car, but they try to steal it anyway. They can't stop themselves.

I think the discrepancy between the demographic of the general population and the enrollment in the public school can be attributed to two factors--aging white homeowners who have lived there for many years and whose kids are grown and gone, and the fact that white people in L.A. don't send their kids to public schools if they can at all afford it.

The dead kid's high school, for comparison, is 7% African American, 1% American Indian, 14% Asian, 25% Latino, 53 % White (not Latino), 5% English Learners, 7% Special Education, 43% Gifted and Talented, 22% Economically Disadvantaged. They've also won the National Academic Decathlon several times in the last decade or so and are considered one of the jewels of the LAUSD.

Yeah, there are no Mexicans or blacks in Pennsylvania...Or twisted pedophile perverts working at your schools, preying on students...

The only sad thing here is your comment.
