On Tuesday, January 18th at approximately 3:03 pm, Pasadena Police Department responded to the 1600 block of Los Robles Ave. after receiving information from the Pasadena Fire Department that they were treating a shooting victim.
By News Desk
The fire department was in the area on an unrelated call when the driver of a white Toyota stopped and asked for help with his 14-year-old front passenger who had been struck in the head by gunfire. Pasadena Fire Department personnel provided medical aid to the victim and the teen was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. In the afternoon of January 20th, Police Detectives were notified by the hospital staff that the victim had succumbed to his injuries.
Detectives from the Pasadena Police Department’s Robbery / Homicide Unit responded to the scene. It was determined the actual shooting had occurred several blocks away, at the intersection of Los Robles Ave. and Eldora Rd. After the shooting, the driver of the victim vehicle drove to the 1600 block of Los Robles Ave, where the Pasadena Fire personnel were located.
Evidence of a shooting was found near Eldora Rd. and officers quickly identified a suspect vehicle believed to be involved. Both the suspect vehicle and the driver were located in the 600 block of Mar Vista Ave. where the driver was detained. This person was identified as 24-year-old Alexis Ibarra, a Pasadena resident. Detectives also located a firearm and other evidence linking Ibarra to the shooting. The case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office on January 21st and Ibarra was charged with Murder and Attempted Murder. His bail was set at $4,000,000.
Detectives are actively investigating this shooting as a criminal gang incident. Additionally, the white Toyota driven by the victims, matched the vehicle driven by the suspects during the January 16th, 2022 robbery/shooting near Villa Parke. Detectives are attempting to determine if the two incidents are connected.
