Officers at the Los Angeles Police Department are asking for the public's help in identifying the person responsible for shooting a man in Winnetka late Friday night.
James Keith Brooks, a 30-year-old resident of Winnetka, was shot while answering a knock at the door of his motorhome at 11:15 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021, according to the LAPD's Valley Bureau.
