Man Shot Dead, Girl Wounded Near Hansen Dam Park

October 15, 2002

A Van Nuys man was killed and a 13-year-old girl wounded in an early-morning shooting near Hansen Dam Park, police said Monday.

Alejandro Jado, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene after the shooting, which was reported about 1 a.m. Sunday in the 12200 block of Osborne Street in Lake View Terrace, said Lucy Diaz, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman.

The 13-year-old, who was not identified because of her age, was wounded in both legs, Diaz said.

Investigators said the victims were fired on by a group of men in a car.

It was not immediately clear whether any words had been exchanged or whether the shooting was gang-related.
