Sylmar teen shot to death after stopping carjacking - LA Daily News
PACOIMA - An 18-year-old was shot to death Sunday morning after trying to help a motorist and stop a carjacking, police said.
Javier Villareal of Sylmar was shot multiple times at 1:05 a.m. and died at the scene of the attack in the 11000 block of El Dorado Avenue, said Sgt. Gil Serafin, Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division.
Serafin said Villareal saw the three men involved in the carjacking and ran over, armed with a gun, to intervene. Villareal's gun caught the attention of the men, and one opened fire on the teen. Villareal fell to the ground.
The men, believed to be in a gang, did not pursue the carjacking any further and fled away in their car.
The motorist involved in the carjacking was not injured, Serafin said.
