Chinatown: Stanley Garcia, 52, a Latino man, died Friday, Oct. 19, three weeks after he was shot several times on Alpine Street in Chinatown and suffered what were at first thought to be non-life-threatening injuries. A determination of homicide came sometime after his death, hence the delay in this posting. LAPD Central detectives are investigating.
According to Lt. Paul Vernon, Garcia was one of the last surviving documented members of the Alpine street gang. This happens sometimes: Gangs go out of business.
