Los Angeles: 

Who shot and killed Michael John Baldwin of LA last Friday morning over at Margaret Avenue and Jefferson Boulevard at around 7 a.m.?

The Los Angeles Police DepartmentPacific Area Detectives are asking the community to help find the person or persons responsible the death of the 29-year-old inside a in a stolen Lexus early Friday morning. 

Here is the situation and the facts of the case:
  • INCIDENT TOOK PLACE LAST Friday, February 4, 2011, at about 7:00 a.m.
  • LAPD responded to a shooting call on Margaret Avenue, just North of Jefferson Boulevard.  
  • Victim Michael John Baldwin of Los Angeles was pronounced dead at the scene
  • Baldwin was found inside a stolen Lexus IS300.
It does not appear that the shooting was gang related and there is no suspect information available at this time.

During the course of the investigation, an unrelated arrest was made for felony evading.  On that unrelated charge, Mario Lopez of Inglewood was booked and has since posted bail.  He was eliminated as the homicide suspect.  The investigation is currently ongoing.

Some media outlets here in LA, including at least one news station, reported that a suspect had been arrested for this murder.  That information is not correct.  The killer is still at large.

So, if you live in this area, or happen to have been near the scene of this unsolved murder, members of the LAPD would like to talk to you.

Lets help find the person or person's responsible for this crime.  Please call the  Pacific Area Homicide Detectives at 310-482-6372.

Did you know Michael John Baldwin? We @ Patch want to hear from you.


Mike could tell a story... 
he was an excellent narrator, his observations were uniquely his own and sometimes brutally honest. But that's what made him such a rare person. He never did anything he didn't make right. 
I hope he is in some comfortable place where he never has to ask "got any shit" ?

A man who was arrested and described by police as a "person of interest" in the fatal shooting of a 34-year-old man in Del Rey is no longer considered a suspect in the killing, police said Monday.

The shooting victim was identified Sunday as Michael John Baldwin by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office. Baldwin was found dead Friday morning in the 5500 block of Margaret Avenue in Del Rey in a stolen Lexus. The cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds and the manner of death was ruled as a homicide, the coroner's office said.

A man who had been under police surveillance was arrested Friday after the shooting after leading police in a car chase in Inglewood, police said. The 43-year-old man allegedly fled police, crashed into a parked vehicle and then fled on foot before he was apprehended. He was arrested for investigation of felony evasion of arrest and was described Sunday night as a "person of interest" in the Del Rey homicide.

The man has been eliminated as a suspect in the homicide and is no longer a person of interest in the case, said Sgt. Mitzi Grasso, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department on Monday.

Baldwin was shot several times and multiple bullet casings were found outside the Lexus, which had been reported stolen a few weeks earlier in West Los Angeles. Baldwin was shot and killed on Margaret Avenue just north of Jefferson Boulevard and south of Juniette Street. Apartment complexes line the stretch of Jefferson Boulevard near where the shooting took place, but the neighborhood just north of the busy street consists mostly of quiet, single-family homes.










Death Investigation:

A man found fatally shot in a stolen car near Culver City was identified today.

Michael John Baldwin, 34, was found in a vehicle in the 5500 block of Margaret Avenue shortly before 7 a.m. Friday, according to police and a coroner's spokesman.

It was unclear if the death was a suicide.

The Lexus that Baldwin was found in had been stolen in West Los Angeles about two weeks earlier, police said.



The LAPD investigated a homicide in Del Rey on Friday after a man was found dead in a vehicle. Authorities say it may be gang-related


Police responded to a report of shots fired on the 5500 block of Margaret Avenue at 6:58 a.m. and found a man in a late-model gray Lexus sedan with multiple gunshot wounds.

The victim, identified only as a white male in his late 20s to early 30s, was declared dead at the scene.

Police say the car was reported as stolen two weeks ago from West Los Angeles.

Police believe the victim either slowed down or was stopped when he was shot.

While there is no evidence that the shooting was gang-related, police say there is a possibility because gang activity from three nearby gangs show up in the area. The attack may have been part of a turf war, police said.

Anyone with information related to the case is urged to call the LAPD at (877) LAPD-24-7.

An unidentified white male was shot in the head and killed Friday morning in a stolen vehicle on a Del Rey street, police said.

Police were called to the 5500 block of Margaret Avenue about 7 a.m. after residents reported hearing five to six gun shots, said Lt. Jeff Bert of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Officers found a white male about 25- to 35-years old inside a late model Lexus with gunshot wounds to his body and multiple bullet casings outside the vehicle, Bert said. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Lexus had been stolen a few weeks ago in West Los Angeles, Bert said.

The victim was shot with a handgun, but the caliber of the weapon was not immediately known.

Police did not have any suspect descriptions.

The man's identity was being withheld until his next of kin was notified, said Lt. David Smith of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.

The man was shot and killed just north of Jefferson Boulevard and south of Juniette Street. Apartment complexes line the stretch of Jefferson Boulevard near where the shooting took place, but the neighborhood just north of the busy street consists mostly of quiet, single-family homes.

The area around the cri


me scene was cordoned off with yellow police tape and about a dozen officers were assisting in the investigation.

Bert described the location as a "nice area," but he said some gangs do pass through it.

"Because of the neighborhood we always take extra caution to exhaust gang angles, but we have no evidence to suggest it was a gang crime particularly," Bert said. "We're looking at all angles right now."

Eric DeSobe, president of the Del Rey Neighborhood Council, said the council would continue to work to make Del Rey safe.

"I want to affirm the Del Rey NC's role in ensuring this community is safe for everyone," DeSobe said. "We will use our unique position to offer a voice for residents' concerns about public safety while at the same time using our close relationship with Pacific Division to support their efforts in any way possible."
