Victor McElhaney, the son of our beloved Oakland District Three Councilmember , was killed in Los Angeles on Sunday, just after midnight. The person or persons who did this are still at large as of this writing. They must be found and brought to justice.

According to reports, Victor McElhaney was in an area of Aams Boulevard and Maple Avenue, located east of the University of Southern California campus. ABC 7 LA wrote “Police say several suspects approached the victim in what appears to be a robbery attempt, fired at him and then fled the scene in a vehicle. The shooting happened just after midnight. He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and later died.”

CBS LA reports “Authorities said the shooting occurred in a parking lot at Adams Boulevard and Maple Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Three or four men approached McElhaney demanding money. One of the men shot the victim.” Now, how the LAPD came to know that “Three or four men approached McElhaney demanding money” is not known, but indicates that there’s a witness.

A number of tributes have been issued for Victor McElhaney, this young man of Oakland, who transferred to USC to pursue jazz studies in 2017.

A supurb talent..

But what is not known is if anyone saw anything connected with the crime done to Victor McElhaney. This post is to get the momentum toward finding those murderers, fast.

LA Police 24-Hour Anonymous Tip Line For Victor McElhaney

If you were in the area of 261 E Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90011, The Los Angeles Police have a 24-Hour Anonymous Tip Line at 1-877-LAPD 24-7 (1-877-527-3247).

What Is The “Hong Kong” In The News Video?

The “Hong Kong” that appears in the news video and looks to be the scene of the crime is Hong Kong Express, located at 261 E Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90011 – in an area called “Historic South-Central”. According to online listings, Hong Kong Express closed at 8 PM and so was not open at the time Victor McElhaney was murdered. The question is, does Hong Kong Express have an outside security camera that may have picked up anything?

One Stop Liquor Is Next To Hong Kong Express

A reader by the name of John Neis on Disqus posted a comment below that read “Hong Kong express is right next to One Stop Liquor which was open”.

posted a Google Review that read “Very dangerous area to be at weather it’s morning or night please be aware stay away.”

Thanks to Google, we now have a full picture of the area of concern:

One Stop Liquor at 255 E Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90011
One Stop Liquor at 255 E Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90011

Photos would seem to place Victor in front of the closed Hong Kong Express.  But, contrary to one news media report, this area is not “abandoned”.

This is the map of the area where the crime was committed:

This space will be updated as more information is gathered. Also, look for social-media-based tips, too. Someone may have been in that area and on social media at the time.

Stay tuned.
