Police search for suspect who shot out windows on La Cienega
Authorities with the Los Angeles Police Department and the Beverly Hills Police Department are searching for a suspect who allegedly shot a pellet gun and smashed windows at numerous stores on La Cienega Boulevard during the early morning hours of Nov. 27.
Lt. James Canales, with the LAPD’s West Los Angeles Division, said four businesses were targeted on the west side of La Cienega Boulevard, and three businesses were targeted on the east side of the street. The incidents occurred shortly after 3 a.m. in the 1400 and 1500 blocks of La Cienega Boulevard.
Sgt. Max Subin, with the Beverly Hills Police Department, said eight additional incidents occurred near La Cienega and Wilshire Boulevard, and on Robertson Boulevard. Subin said police are investigating the incidents as vandalism, and are hoping to locate surveillance camera footage or witnesses who can direct them to a suspect. No injuries were reported.
“They weren’t burglaries. We think it was just someone driving down the street,” Subin said. “It appears they committed the acts of vandalism with a pellet gun.”
Canales said police found a pellet inside one of the locations on La Cienega Boulevard. He said one of the businesses was a 7-Eleven store, but did not have information about the other businesses. Subin added that the Beverly Hills Police Department does not disclose the names of victims.
Anyone with information about the incidents is urged to contact the LAPD’s West Los Angeles Division at (213)444-0702, or the Beverly Hills Police Department at (310)550-4951.
