NELA Skater Community Rallies Behind Jeff De Rosas

by Bryan Santamaria

   Jeff De Rosas is a local young man of Highland Park who is most happy when he's out skating. Unfortunately, we will not have the luxury to see Jeff skate with us anytime soon. Jeff suffered an injury to the head a couple of months back. His injury resulted from a stray bullet during a drive-by shooting. Jeff received the injury while attending a house party in Highland Park.

   According to several witnesses at the party who remain anonymous, Jeff and his friends were inside the house when someone in a passing vehicle fired the shots. As one witnesses recalls, "Once the commotion cleared, they noticed Jeff." He was merely an innocent bystander who only wanted be out around friends. Yet he lay down shot that night for reasons he could not control.

Please Highland Park Say it Isn't So

by David R. Bloom

   Thirty-eight-year-old Tony Infante, an American citizen of Mexican descent, has lived with his wife at 4930 Echo Street in a rent-controlled Highland Park apartment for the past three years. The couple pays their $1,000 rent on time each month, yet in March their landlord’s “handyman,” a side of beef by the name of Jacob Avila, claimed the money simply never got to them, Infante says.

Middle Eastern Men With Backpacks and Weapons Detained in High Desert

by LA1 News

   San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputies responded on Easter Morning to a 911 report of shots fired in the Deep Creek Hot Springs area of Apple Valley. The report came in to the Victor Valley sheriff's station of over 100 shots fired by men "wearing turbans." An aerial search was conducted due to the rugged terrain, which located a group of 17 men. They were allegedly found in possession of several handguns, one rifle and a shotgun.

   The men were, according to "Victor Valley News," interviewed by a local FBI agent and subjected to records checks. With no outstanding warrants or criminal histories, and weapons "registered with the Department of Justice except for the rifle," the detainees were let go. Despite interviews with several hikers in the area, no evidence was found to support the original 911 report of a crime of shots fired.
