LOCAL : Four Seized in Northridge Slaying


Four suspects were arrested this morning in the robbery and slaying of a man who had made a withdrawal from an automatic teller machine at a Northridge savings and loan, Los Angeles police said.

Police said one of the suspects, Elisaia Reupena, 26, was arrested in a Torrance hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound apparently sustained during the struggle with the victim, Aslam Hasham, 29, of Canoga Park, who was shot to death Tuesday night in the Coast Savings parking lot at Nordhoff Street and Tampa Avenue.

Stephan Rice and Marty Mares, both 20, and a 17-year-old youth were arrested at their homes in Granada Hills, police said. All four were being held without bail on suspicion of murder.
