The Eastsider LA is reporting that police have made an arrest in relation to the June 21 shooting outside of The Echo nightclub in Echo Park.
The incident occurred around 2:00 am on Monday, June 21. A Rampart Division officer told us in an update that the suspect supposedly shot at a security guard after being denied entry into the club. The suspect was described as: “a stocky White or Latino male standing 5′-8″ to 5′-11″ tall and weighing between 200 to 230 pounds, according to preliminary reports.”
The shooting injured three people, two were released from the hospital after being treated, the third was shot in the torso and was hospitalized (we have no updates on his condition at this time).
Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the LAPD Rampart Division told The Eastsider LA today: “Our gang unit followed a bunch of leads and made an arrest in that shooting at the Echo, which occurred on June 21. They just did so a little while ago after serving a search and arrest warrant.”
