North Hills: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Bureau Homicide are asking for the public's help in providing information that will lead to the arrest of the suspect responsible for the murder of 29-year-old Alfredo Linares, a resident of North Hills.

On December 6, 2017, around 8:55 p.m., Mission Area uniformed patrol officers responded to a radio call of an "Ambulance Shots Fired," in the 8700 block of Langdon Avenue in North Hills. Upon arrival, officers observed Linares laying on the ground suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was unconscious and unresponsive.
