Four women were killed and two other people wounded--one critically--late Sunday night when a man crashed a birthday party for his estranged wife in East Los Angeles and opened fire with a handgun, authorities said today. The shooting spree occurred shortly after guests received a telephone call warning them that Raymundo Navarro Jr., 26, was en route to the party to kill Maria de Navarro as she celebrated her 27th birthday, witnesses said.

Joining a gang would be easy for Humberto Ramirez, who has lived in an East Los Angeles housing project for 14 of his 17 years. Every day, he must make decisions that could compromise his future. "A lot of my close friends recently got into a gang and they really don't have a life anymore," he said. Ramirez has always chosen baseball over gangs. Since the time his father would take him to a park to hit him ground balls, baseball has been his No. 1 priority. "I love the game," he said.

As the temperature drops and the wind blows cold, homeless families find it harder to live on the streets and harder still to find shelter. Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley is determined to shelter desperate parents and their children in trailers this winter, but he needs permission from City Council members to put trailers in their districts. So far only Councilman Richard Alatorre has given a go-ahead. Alatorre allowed three trailers to open Thursday in his district.

Local mural production may be flourishing these days, but mural vandalism via graffiti seems to be worse than ever. "It's the biggest hurdle in terms of whether muralists have the incentive to keep painting murals," said muralist Kent Twitchell. "If (graffiti vandals) hit the one I'm working on now, it'll probably take that incentive right out of me."

Christmas music chimed through the Glendale Galleria. Santa Claus jounced toddlers on his knee. And seven children with cancer, four of them from Mexico and three from Los Angeles, were on a shopping spree arranged by Los Angeles police officers. "How about some of these?" Officer Gilbert Escontrias asked Mike Dighero, holding up a pair of jeans for the frail, 6-year-old Boyle Heights boy.
