In his weekly report ( https://goo.gl/c830nc ), City Manager Oliver Chi reports ...
~ Police are investigating an apparent gang shooting on Dec. 28. "At 1:15 a.m., at 1324 S. Alta Vista Avenue, a male Hispanic and a female were walking in front of the identified location. A vehicle with three as of yet unidentified African American suspects pulled up, and the individuals were reported to have yelled out 'Duroc,' in reference to the Duroc Crips gang." Chi says five shots were fired at the victims from a 9 mm pistol and the man was struck in the foot and in the upper leg. So, a) be careful, and b) call the Monrovia Police Department if you know anything about this or if you see anything out of the ordinary.
