Hollywood, CA–A 17-year-old Latina girl was shot and killed last night after a fight broke out on Hollywood Boulevard. A 33-year-old man has been charged with her murder and is being held on $3 million dollars bail.
The identity of the girl has not yet been released. A Go fund me set up on her behalf only describes her as “Ale.”
Ale is said to have been standing near Hollywood Boulevard and Highland after a street racing event. Video from after the event yesterday shows an altercation, and a man is seen pulling a gun from his waistband as he is sucker-punched from the side and falls to the ground.
“Ramon Roque Monreal, of El Paso, Texas, was taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies around 3:45 a.m. in the area of 223rd and Figueroa streets after an unrelated radio call. Monreal was allegedly in possession of a firearm, the LAPD said. Sheriff’s deputies notified LAPD Hollywood homicide detectives, who later arrested him for suspicion of murder,” (Fox 11).
“A few hours ago we were given the worst news we have ever received. Ale was only 17 and was barley getting her life started. She was one of a kind and the life of the party.
Yesterday around midnight, Ale was caught in a crossfire at a car show and was shot and killed instantly. This hit everybody by surprise.
She was at the wrong place at the wrong time and unfortunately it cost her her life.
She will forever live in our hearts. My family wants to give her the burial service she deserves; however, if you can’t donate please keep my family in your prayers. Thank you.“
