The Other Cat Got Away

The LAPD northeast division's June 2006 Commendable Caper Award sounds like it would go to something light and fluffy. Like a kitten rescue. But then you read it:

On April 14, 2006, a gang murder occurred in the North Atwater Village area.

During the early hours of the morning, two victims on their way to work were struck from behind by a vehicle. As they pulled over to exchange information, gang members pulled out their guns and struck one victim in the back of the head killing him instantly. The driver, victim two, was able to get away.

Due to outstanding leads, the CAT, Footbeat and Homicide Unit were able to apprehend the suspects within six days. These units worked around the clock so that justice could be served to the fallen victim and the family. Thank you for your hard work.

Gulp. I assume by "North" Atwater Village they are referring to those trouble-makers in the 43rd Assembly District.

P.S. - Does anyone else's phone bill list calls to the non-emergency 311 city government line as calls to police?
