Sheriff's Deputy, Brother, Escape Altadena Shooting Attack

The deputy and his brother were inside a personal vehicle which was hit by at least one bullet, officials said.

A deputy and his brother in Altadena escaped injury Saturday when three shots were fired at them in a vehicle-to-vehicle shooting, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported.

The shootings occurred about 3:40 a.m. near Harriet Street and Lincoln
Avenue, as a dark-colored Lexus sedan pulled up beside the deputy's personal
vehicle's driver's side.

A passenger in the suspect car fired three rounds before the driver sped off.

Deputies searched the area but could not locate the suspect vehicle. Sheriff's Investigators asked that anyone who saw the shooting call 626-798-1131.

11 am, terribly sad - I'm so grateful that I wasn't out at that time of day & in that vicinity - around the corner from mcdonalds on Lincoln & Woodbury. Also, about 9 pm last night 2 people were killed & 2 injured when a vehicle fleeing from the Pasadena Police slammed into a van they were drivers/passengers in. The fleeing suspects were captured and now face a manslaughter charge. People, it's time to wake up and realize that these shootings are devastating to families - some are not able to recover from the pain that this causes. There's been a SERIES of shootings in Altadena / Pasadena for the past 2 or so months - does anyone know what's going on in the streets?

I know this happened in Pasadena, but I think it is important enough for the Altadena Patch to report on http://www.pasadenasun.com/the626now/tn-626-two-wounded-by-christmas-day-gunfire-in-pasadena-20121225,0,6547188.story I was acquainted with one of the victims, and he was a nice person. I hope this wakes up the community. It feels like the violence around here is reaching a boiling point.

CSULA09: That is the same story I wrote about. However, the headline has been corrected to "One killed, one wounded by Christmas day gunfire in Pasadena."

We are all passionate, we need to act on it!!!!!!!! I think we need a public campaign to educate our neighbors that aren't aware of the violent crimes in Altadena. I think we need 3 things: 1. Physical Neighborhood Watch meetings where we meet our neighbors face to face, get a few groups together and go back to old school techniques-like actually taking turns watching the neighborhood. (Sheriff representatives should be invited.) 2. An Altadena gun buyback program. Where turning in a gun gets you a $50 or $100 gift certificate. To many people that is a lot of money and worth not being tempted to use a gun and spend the rest of your life in jail. Many of these guns are stolen property-we need to get them off the streets. 3. Let's redesign the terminology. Calling someone a 'gang member' glorifies their actions and gives them the satisfaction of believing they are apart of something. They are not. They are alone, making bad decisions. They are misguided youth and lazy adults. People may feel isolated, might not have the best vocabulary, education or skills but there is a whole world of opportunity out there if one is willing to look. Who wants to help?

CSULA09 December 27, 2012 at 05:04 PM
Hi Lovely. I'm in. I'll call the Sheriff's today, they never returned my call.
Revvell December 27, 2012 at 05:26 PM
Call and ask for Community Relations ~ That would be Deputy Manier or Sgt. Bossier.
CSULA09 December 27, 2012 at 05:30 PM
Hi Revvell. I left a message with Sgt. Bossier, and he has not returned my call yet. I will try again. Thank you.
Isabella Baumfree December 27, 2012 at 05:42 PM
Buzlightyear aka marty - do you think you can find pictures to post of these people so I'll know who to look out for?
Isabella Baumfree December 27, 2012 at 05:44 PM
There's a possibility that these could be the persons who shot at the Deputy & his brother the other night and who've been doing all these shootings in Altadena....hmmmmmmmm now they've killed the woman & her cousin (11 years old) -
not Carl Peterson lll December 27, 2012 at 10:38 PM
Issabella, actually I hesitated with my above post. I have not updated myself with todays news, but as of my post last night, one was driving with three passengers. No known connection with shootings except speculation. The news however did say that they were all gang members, and not cooperating. The chase started from Marengo and Claremont. I had a million dollar (before prices dropped) house just a few doors down. A small block over is Summit which has been a problem for decades. Helecopters and police around every night. I kind of miss the excitement in a sick kinda way.
CSULA09 December 27, 2012 at 11:27 PM
Revvell - I left the message on Monday....a really long message and will give it another try. Thank you for offering though.
CSULA09 December 28, 2012 at 04:08 AM
Another shooting this morning: http://www.pasadenasun.com/the626now/tn-626-shots-fired-in-pasadena-thursday-morning-20121227,0,3875533.story
CSULA09 December 28, 2012 at 04:18 AM
Buzlightyear aka marty - I read that the passengers of the SUV discarded a handgun during the chase that was recovered by police.
Reiu K December 28, 2012 at 08:23 AM
Thank you for your reply, Altadena Patch.
yeahian December 28, 2012 at 08:45 AM
Hopefully this was confirmed with the airline.
yeahian December 28, 2012 at 08:48 AM
this borders on libel.
not Carl Peterson lll December 28, 2012 at 09:31 AM
Yeahian I put in print what I heard on the news, and put in my opinion with it. You have a problem with that? Repeating a news story.....opinion... Ok, you stop your opinions first. Oh, better get rid of the little freedom of speech thing first!!! You're a government worker huh?
Revvell December 28, 2012 at 01:11 PM
You're welcome. If you call today, please tell him you're the one I told him about from the Sierra Madre Patch on Thursday.
Isabella Baumfree December 28, 2012 at 01:51 PM
CSULA09 be encouraged, they're extremely busy, especially in light of everything that's being going on, but I believe that they'll return your call soon. @Buzzlightyear aka marty - thank you for that information, Brittney is from LA - now it's official all of them have gangties. A million dollar house - oh my - what a loss.@ Yeahian, it's hard to believe that you have a problem with their names being posted - wouldn't you want these people to be known? apparantly they wanted to be known - the drive on "Active Parole", my @ 22 - you know he has history.
Isabella Baumfree December 28, 2012 at 09:45 PM
@ yeahian - no more libel borders - libel this: Two alleged gang members were charged with murder Friday for their roles in a police chase that ended in a fatal Christmas Day crash, prosecutors said. Darrell Williams, 22, of Pasadena, and Brittany Washington, 21, of Los Angeles, were each charged with two counts of murder, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Too bad the other 2 skated - (which by the way, the family that they crashed into and KILLED 2 of the members were coming back from Ice Skating) - didn't have charges filed against them, but i'm certain they'll go out and do something else & get caught -
Isabella Baumfree December 28, 2012 at 09:46 PM
or at least I hope that they get caught!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ship they asses to Iran/Iraq/Pakistan somewhere; anywhere but get them out of the USA!!
Ivan G December 28, 2012 at 11:00 PM
I wonder what ballistics tests will show, and whether there were any usable fingerprints on the gun.
yeahian December 29, 2012 at 02:42 AM
he drove past him in the end and there were shots thirty seconds after the first three. idk what happened not claiming anything just curious cause the original info didn't add up.
yeahian December 29, 2012 at 02:43 AM
you sound like my four year old . i think you know less than her but who cares
not Carl Peterson lll December 29, 2012 at 06:31 AM
AND THE SPIN BEGINS. I just saw one Darshall Hannah cousin of the "suspected" murderer, try to blame the police. Darshall, GET OUT OF MY TOWN!!! Take your family and leave Darshall Hannah. Libel this Beyoughs. You go tell the victims family that your cousin, gang member who is not cooperating with the police that the police are at fault, Darshall Hannah.
not Carl Peterson lll December 29, 2012 at 06:51 AM
KTLA might have spelled the name wrong. I see a Darshall Hannah in Pasadena with a slightly different spelling that has a relative with the same name as the suspect. ALL PUBLIC INFO. However, on the side of caution I will not print anything that from my own search. Innocent people can, and do have similar names. So I will wait for any public information.
not Carl Peterson lll January 02, 2013 at 08:07 AM
So..... What happened with this story? Maybe I have been out of the news cycle, but haven't heard anything in four or five days.
