    Another shooting yesterday in Carson, unclear whether or not it is related...

    MAY 4, 2019
    19-Year-Old Man Shot to Death in Carson
    Authorities found a man shot to death in a residential area in Carson early Saturday just as an investigation into another fatal shooting less than 3 miles away continued for a third week.

    Detectives responded to the 18300 block of Milmore Avenue at around 1:15 a.m. after receiving a call about a gunshot victim, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

    [...]

    Exodus Joseph Foisia, 19, of Carson died at the scene of the shooting, Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner Coroner Lt. David Smith said.

    The shooting happened a day after authorities announced a $20,000 reward in an April 16 shooting in the 400 block of East Carson Plaza Drive. In that case, officials reported finding a 32-year-old Las Vegas man shot in the neck and torso inside a parked vehicle near a number of businesses.

    Detectives are looking for a woman and her ex-husband in connection with that shooting, along with their 15-year-old daughter, whose disappearance triggered an Amber Alert.

    Driving on the 405 freeway in LA today and saw a billboard for Alora. I hope she is safe wherever she is.

    Time slowly marches on.
    This bump hopes to bring positive thoughts to the FBI finding this missing girl alive, and well.

    I have a feeling she’s alive and being hidden with those two in Mexico. Can’t imagine what she’s going through, and how selfish of them to make so many decisions to ruin this young girls life. Hope she is found and gets to go home to safe people that surround her with love- not fear and murder

    June 14, 2019

    A man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Carson has been arrested in Mexico, while the man’s ex-wife, who is also suspected in the killing, and her 15-year-old daughter remained missing, authorities.

    Roman Cerratos, 39, is accused of the April 16 shooting death of Jeffrey Appel, 32, of Las Vegas, in the 400 block of East Carson Drive, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

    He was apprehended in Mexico and returned to Los Angeles County on Friday night via LAX, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

    Carson murder suspect arrested in Mexico; search continues for missing 15-year-old girl, second suspect
    [...]

    Roman Cerratos was accompanied by an FBI agent to the United States. He was turned over to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after he arrived to Los Angeles International Airport Friday from Guadalajara.

    [...]

    Authorities are still searching for the 15-year-old girl and Mercado, investigators tell Eyewitness News.

    "We had information that they worked together at some point in Colima, Mexico. We believe they also had traveled from Vallarta, Mexico. At this point, their whereabouts are unknown. We're hoping that this media attention... that she'll take note of it and maybe surrender, turn herself into a consulate or embassy in Mexico," said FBI agent Scott Garriola.

    The FBI is not saying how Cerratos was captured.

    No change:
    "A man suspected in a Carson homicide was arrested last week in Mexico after a months-long search, but the woman and teenage girl he was believed to be traveling with are still missing, authorities said.
