Former Eddie's Jr. Market to Become 7-11 Convenience Store

by LA1 News

   Every Franklin High School student knows the spot well. The liquor store at the corner of Avenue 54 and York Boulevard called "Eddie's Jr. Market" was a destination for many on their way to "Stoner Park" or a ditching party, or just stopping by on the way home to grab a snack. In 1995 it was purchased by an elderly couple who changed the name to "Carl's Liquor and Jr. Market." Known for their hospitality and kindness, credit was given to local families and cheap prices contributed to the continued popularity of the spot. Another family member, Joe, ran "Mario's Liquor" just down the street and is known by longtime residents as a super-cool and kind store owner.

Man Injured in Leg in Highland Park Shooting

by LA1 News

   Shortly before 5:00 p.m. today, a man was shot in the leg on the north side of North Figueroa Street, just east of Avenue 54. The shooting occurred just outside Mama's Donuts, right next to the taco cart on the sidewalk outside the shop.

   A witness who was standing at the bus stop when the incident occurred said that "several shots" were fired by two assailants walking east on Figueroa. They apparently passed two men, then turned back and began firing, striking one of their targets in the leg. The victim was taken away from the scene in an LAFD paramedic squad.

   The shooting is just the latest in a string of violent crimes to hit the Highland Park area lately, a destination for many newly arrived residents willing to pay high prices for homes close to the center of Los Angeles.
