Cops are looking for a man who allegedly killed Nester Hernandez as he closed up his wireless phone shop on Woodman Ave in Arleta.
Officials released photographs of the suspect on Wednesday. He is described as a heavy-set Hispanic man, wearing a white shirt and carrying a gun. "It's apparent the shooter appears suddenly from the victim's right," said Lt. Paul Vernon. "There's no real confrontation, just an immediate assault. It's deliberate, premeditated and tends to show it's a grudge."
The shooting occurred at 8:40pm on July 8 in the 8900 block of Woodman Ave. Detectives also want to talk to a woman seen entering a tattoo shot just after the shooting. They think she is the nearest eyewitness to what happened
