    According to local news, he opened fire at a business and at a nearby home. Police have no idea yet as to motive.

    Information is very sketchy at this time.

    Somebody was way mad obviously. Maybe fraud within the business? Drugs? Is there gang activity there, Joe?

    Unhappy Craig's List Murders

    Suspect arrested in Downey shootings identified

    A family spokeswoman, Martha Zerehi, said the gunman responded to a Craigslist ad for a Chevrolet Camaro.

    He drew a handgun and demanded the car, Zerehi said. The gunman was told that the car was not at the business but down the street at the family home. Perez-Ruelas and her son were ordered to drive the gunman in their truck to the home.

    Suspect a parolee with gang ties:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/la-downe...tory?track=rss

    He mercilessly gunned down two employees at the business, then forced one of the family members and her son to go with him to the house, where the car was located. He taunted the 13-yr old boy before shooting his mother and then him. The boy survived by playing dead. His mother did not.

    An atrocious crime that deserves the death penalty. It's too bad that California voters may overturn capital punishment next week in the election. The polls are very close.

    A new indictment has been filed that will streamline the trial process.

    Jade Douglas Harris has been charged with murder, kidnapping, and carjacking. Special circumstance allegations could lead to the death penalty.

    From the article in the previous post:

    Harris has a checkered criminal past that includes convictions for robbery and attempted robbery in 2005 and carrying a concealed weapon in 2003.

    ....and these peeps are free and out there to walk amongst us?

    Law Street Media, a company launched in 2013, decided to take a deeper look into Craigslist to see how dangerous it really is...

    The study by Law Street Media found 58 murderers and 45 murder victims connected to Craigslist postings since 2009...

    JADE HARRIS - Trial was originally scheduled to begin December 2014. Has not happened.
