Parking Lot Shooting Charges

District Attorney George Gascón expressed outrage over the incident, which he called a “brazen act of violence” that could have easily resulted in the injury or death of innocent shoppers.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the shooting was related to a drug deal that had gone wrong. Mark Elton Connole, the alleged shooter, was accompanied by Amy Waters, his accomplice. After the shooting, the pair fled the scene in their vehicle, prompting a brief pursuit by the police.

The pursuit ended when they crashed into another driver, who was not seriously injured. The suspects were arrested without further incident at Canoga Boulevard and Saticoy Street.

In addition to the charges against Connole, the District Attorney’s Office has also charged Waters with one count of accessory after the fact, possession for sale of a controlled substance, and fleeing a pursuing peace officer’s motor vehicle while driving recklessly.

The shooting took place on April 1 in the middle of a Saturday afternoon

One victim was found dead in the parking lot, and three others were taken to the hospital, with one in critical condition and another in serious condition. The incident has sparked concern and condemnation from local officials, who have pledged to take action to ensure the safety and well-being of the community.

Connole and Waters are scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday afternoon. The incident serves as a reminder of the dangers of violence and drug-related activity in public spaces such as parking lots and underscores the need for law enforcement to take swift action in response to such incidents.
