Willy Rosoto-Reyes, L.A. Homicide No. 19: Man Shot Dead After Alleged Dispute With Killer
By Annabel Martin
Willy Rosoto-Reyes, a 46-year-old Latino man, was fatally shot on January 24 on the 1400 block of West 6th Street in Westlake. Though City News Service initially reported that Reyes was shot at 5 a.m. by a man he had previously been arguing with, LAPD Detective Jeff Cortina described the case to the Los Angeles Times as a walk-up shooting, and said it was not gang-related.
When police arrived at the scene, Reyes was already dead.
At around the same time, the LAPD got another 911 call from a few blocks away, on 3rd Street and Westlake Avenue, concerning an injured man who had also been shot.
