Suspect in Custody for Israel Cervantes Shooting

The arrest was made on Tuesday evening, according to LAPD Northeast Division's Facebook page.

An arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Highland Park resident Israel Cervantes, Detective B. Martin of LAPD Northeast's Homicide Division confirmed on Wednesday morning.

According to police reports, Cervantes was fatally wounded near the Highland Park Gold Line station on Marmion Way at around 2 a.m. on Monday morning.

A message posted on Northeast Area LAPD's Facebook page on Tuesday night informed followers that officers "have the suspect in custody from the Marmion Way murder."

"I can confirm that a suspect is in custody," Martin told Patch on Wednesday.

Martin said he could not release the suspect's name as the suspect has yet to be charged.

We will have more details on the arrest as they become available.

Mog, your comments have been sensitive and simply matter-of-fact and i see that you have only made reference to things that have been reported or commented by people who seem to have the inside story. I dont know if you actually knew Israel or you were touched by the whole story as a member of this community, but it is nice that you have taken an interest in what happened and it is appreciated. (ever consider running for mayor? no, wait,you seem much to inteligent for that.) Best wishes to you.

Thank you so much ali. I really needed that support! I didn't know the young man who died. I just know that in todays world, with so many other options avilable to enjoy life, there has to be a way to divert violent propensities in our human natures. I grew up here, I've loved so many friends who've passed away...it's hard to keep track. Highland Park is one of those places that has away of becoming part of a person. It's almost a mystical,supernatural thing...I wish I could write a novel to capture this place. May God Bless Highland Park, truly. I propose a PEACE IN NELA MARCH, to be organized ASAP, as a show of neighborhood solidarity, and deviance against the evil that threatens our area's businesses, homes, families,neighbors,friends,& loved ones. Sound like a good idea?

MOG I don't need you to be a smart ass! Israel was a good friend of mine and I took a walk down by where they say he was killed didn't see anything, I was asking to have a more specific location. I walked bk & forth by the goldline even had a friend pick me up and we drove around Marmion 59 & 60 and didn't see anything up.

Shut up MOG you talk way too much.
flygirl September 20, 2012 at 03:56 PM
Wow Mog I thought you had a good resource of information before posting, but I see you don't. The word retaliation should have never been used in your original comment regardless of where you heard it from. I have learned from this, thank you. Carl, thank you too.
The MOG September 20, 2012 at 06:44 PM
@Carl Showalter,I don't comment any more than you do, but I certainly appreciate your advice. Boy do I ever. LOL! @ Flygirl, all I know is what I read reported, not claiming any inside info. I think my use of the word was appropriate, taken in context. Anyway, everyone makes comments they later regret. That's part of being human, I guess. It's water under the bridge...let's move on.
Carl Showalter September 20, 2012 at 09:00 PM
I have made 96 comments including this one since joining in Dec 2011. You have made 220 since August of this year. Since you are running for office, maybe now is a good time to become more factual.
The MOG September 20, 2012 at 11:57 PM
OMG! You actually counted the comments? I can't believe that. Well, sir. I stand corrected...I'm nearly 3x as vocal as yourself. Don't hold me to that, my math is as bad as my spelling. LOL! I hope I will earn your vote 4 a seat on the HHPNC. I don't think we are far apart on most things. Anyway, this is off topic.

@ Carl - You are speaking the truth.
Tiff Love Conant September 21, 2012 at 11:21 AM
did u find it yet if not its on a small one way st right 60 on the right if u were facing food for less
Teresa September 25, 2012 at 05:32 PM
@ Luis i happen to know them both but that still don't give you the right to say such harsh words, no matter what a life should've never been taken to put wounds in the families hearts and to leave a 9yr old boy fatherless, i think if you don't have anything nice to say then you should just remain silence, and have respect for the Israels family and his son.

U guys Dont know nothing the so called suspect was once beat by Israel with bras knuckles sending omar to the hospital omar was hurt very bad he was leaking blood from his brain so no Israel was not a good person he broke his bros ribs once and also would hit his mother he always high on meth does he sound innocent and what u guys dontt know is that israel aporched omar with all his friends they were going beat omar Israel was a thret to omar omar was scared for his life knowing Israel sent him already to the hospital so it was self defense so all of u shut up free omar Gutierrez we got this we could win
El Cid September 30, 2012 at 11:56 PM
I'm at a loss for words! It's truly sad times - if what is stated above is true! I can't believe in 2012, adults couldn't find a better way to live, co-exist, and extend friendship instead. From an outsider looking in - all parties are living a real nightmare! I truly hope everyone finds peace, love, and forgiveness!
oust90042 October 01, 2012 at 07:00 AM
It is true we got the police report that omar did when israel beat him up and we got the hospital papers also we even got pictures of omar in the hospital all broozed and hurt bad so with all this evidence we got might just help alot free omar

WOW UNBELIEVABLE, NO MATTER WHAT OMAR HAD NO RIGHT TO TAKE ISRAELS LIFE AWAY FROM HIM, N TO LEAVE HIS SON FATHERLESS, WHETHER OMAR WAS AFRAID FOR HIS LIFE HE SHOULD OF NEVER SHOT N KILLED MR. CERVANTES, N IF YOU WEREN'T THERE, YOUR NO GOOD TO TALK AS WELL AS EVERYONE ON THIS, THE PAST IS THE PAST ABOUT WHAT HAPPEN WITH HIM, ISRAEL GOT THAT CUT ON HIS FACE FROM A B**** NO ONE LIKES, N OMAR SEEMED TO TELL PEOPLE EVERYTHING THAT WENT ON WITH ISRAEL, BUT I STILL SAY EVEN IF YOU HAVE EVIDENCE SHOULD NOT COUNT ON WHAT HE TO ISRAEL
