Police Renew Call for Help to Find Killer

Authorities Thursday restated their appeal for public help in solving the killing of a man who was gunned down while celebrating his 39th birthday with relatives in front of his home in the Willowbrook area.

Ramiro Lepe was shot about 9 p.m. Aug. 5 in the 2600 block of East 129th Street and died at a hospital. He is survived by his wife and four children. According to investigators, three young Hispanic men got out of a faded red 1990s four-door compact car, and one of them opened fire on Lepe with a handgun.

A reward of $10,000 has been offered by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for help in solving the crime. Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
