I read with amazement and dismay the articles in The Times (Metro, Feb. 2, 3) pertaining to the gang shooting in Westwood. First of all, let me say that I am saddened by the loss of life as a result of a senseless attack and I grieve with the family.

Lt. Gabe Ornelas, who heads the Los Angeles Police Department's bank robbery detail, said that investigators do not have hard figures to confirm their suspicions.
