Alhambra teen injured in Lincoln Heights shooting

A teenage boy from Alhambra was shot and injured in Lincoln Heights on Sunday, according to Hollenbeck Community Police Station.

Police said the shooting happened at Daly Street and Pasadena Avenue. One person was injured. Currently no one is in custody. Police say it could be a gang related crime.

Cynthia Shijie, mother of Adrian Shijie, who was shot and killed in Lincoln Heights on Sep 20., posted about the incident on Facebook. She said the parents of the victim told her that the shooting happened at around 4p.m. The victim, 17 years old, was shot in the leg as he was on the way to a candle vigil for the 3rd month anniversary of Adrian's passing with some friends from Alhambra. He is currently in the hospital.

Another 16-year-old boy who went to the vigil with the victim was arrested by the police and then released during the night. “The other boy was arrested because he stayed with the boy whom was shot until ambulances arrived,” said Shijie. Shijie said the boy told her a white Ford Explorer approached them while they were crossing the street by Avenue 26th and Daly. The shooter threw gang signs at them then shot at them.

Police said the incident is still under investigation and that there is no suspect description. They are not sure if the Shijie incident and the recent incident are related.

Cynthia says she hopes that family members and friends from Alhambra will stop going to mourn his son in Lincoln Heights. “They can light a candle at a church, at my home, by Adrian's school – Century High. I know the children need to mourn just as our family is and many will not forget Adrian. But let's find a safe way to mourn within our Alhambra community,” she said.
