Two Shot in Pico Neighborhood

By Lookout Staff

August 13 -- Two people were shot outside a liquor store in the Pico Neighborhood shortly after midnight Sunday, according to police.

The two victims were brought to the emergency room at Saint John’s Health Center where they were in critical condition, police said.

The victims were standing in the parking lot of Eddie’s Liquor at the intersection of 20th and Pico Boulevard when an unknown suspect or suspects fired several gunshots at the victims, striking them both, police said.

No suspect description is available at this time, said Lt. Alex Padilla, the Police Department spokesman.

Eddie’s Liquor was the scene of an October 17, 1998 homicide that was part of a shooting spree -- that included the high-profile murder of a German tourist -- that gripped the beachside city,.

In that incident, several Latino men chased Juan Campos into the store and cornered him, police said. Campos was shot multiple times.

The investigation into Sunday’s shooting is ongoing, Padilla said.

Anyone having any information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Santa Monica Police Department Robbery/Homicide Division at 310-458-8451.
