2 Culver City Men Charged in Shooting Death of Costumer

May 20, 2000

CULVER CITY — Two men have been charged with capital murder in the slaying of a costumer for the television show "Nash Bridges," prosecutors said Friday.

Jose Lopez, 20, and Victor Angel Moreno, 21, both of Culver City, are accused of killing Bradley Anderson as they robbed a Culver City liquor store May 12.

Police Det. Mike Conzachi said investigators were led to the two suspects through fingerprints found at the store.

Lopez, alleged to have fired the fatal shot, and Moreno were arrested Tuesday and are being held without bail.

Deputy Dist. Atty. Steven Levine said that Anderson, 42, of San Francisco, had walked in on the robbery and was trying to leave when Lopez shot him in the back. Anderson, a career film and television costumer, was dead on arrival at the hospital.

Levine said the robbers took a small amount of cash and fled. Police found a handgun near the crime scene, he said.

The suspects are scheduled to be arraigned June 1.
