12th and Ottawa: Gangs' ground zero
David Ogul
June 28, 1994


RIVERSIDE

It is just another corner in an impoverished neighborhood, where gangs are the most influential institution and misery is the only industry that thrives. But to the homeboys on the Eastside, it is a lot more.

Twelfth and Ottawa is where the recent gang wars and racial tensions between blacks and Hispanics started.

It began with a drive-by shooting on April 24, 1990, that led to a ruptured gang alliance and triggered all-out war.

Gunmen in a light blue Oldsmobile crammed with 2800 block Crips from Casa Blanca drove by on a sunny afternoon and opened fire on anyone they could find.

They found Stuart Warhop.

Warhop, a member of the Eastside's 1200 block Crips, died two months later. Numerous homeboys decked out in gang attire attended his funeral at the Faith Temple on Pennsylvania Avenue, pledging not to let Warhop die in vain.

They kept their promise.

The shooting of Warhop was just one in a continuing fight between the warring Crips factions, but it was a galvanizing one for the two predominantly black groups.

Forays by the 1200 block Crips into the largely Hispanic Casa Blanca neighborhood claimed by the 2800 block Crips escalated.

By the end of 1990, the 1200 block Crips took the unprecedented step of joining forces with the predominantly Hispanic Tiny Dukes, an Eastside gang that police say is the most violent in the city. By the spring of 1991, drive-by shootings were occurring on a nightly basis.

The partnership hit its zenith on the night of March 8. That is when a carload of Tiny Dukes and 1200 block Crips drove to Casa Blanca and murdered 15-year-old Ismael Carrillo just two blocks from the Riverside Police Department's Lincoln Avenue station.

The law came down with a vengeance. More than two dozen gang members were successfully prosecuted in connection with the attack, making it the largest murder conspiracy case in the county.

The Mexican Mafia came down just as hard. The prison-based syndicate reacted by forbidding its members to associate with black gang members.

"You don't go up against the Mexican Mafia," said 16-year-old Jose Martinez, an Eastside native with many friends in the Tiny Dukes. By the end of 1993, the Tiny Dukes and the 1200 block Crips were again mortal enemies. And the victims include more than those affiliated with gangs.

On March 7, a suspected black gang member ambushed a 29-year-old Hispanic man walking home with his girlfriend, blasting a shotgun round into the man's head. On Feb. 2, four black gang members fired on a group of teen-agers practicing a wedding dance near the Community Settlement Association on Bermuda Avenue. Just weeks before that, a 10-year-old black girl had a gun shoved in her face because she was visiting a friend in Tiny Dukes territory.

"It pissed me off," said the girl's mother, Debra Morgan. "But it didn't piss me off because it was some Mexican pulling this off; it pissed me off because someone could pull a gun on a child. I don't care what color you are, you should not have someone pulling a gun on a little kid."

Riverside police see surge in slayings: Seven homicides have been reported in the first 10 weeks of the year.
Lisa O'Neill Hill
March 18, 2000


RIVERSIDE

Ten weeks, seven bodies. Since the beginning of the year, Riverside homicide detectives have investigated nearly one slaying a week.

And the surge comes after the number of homicides nearly doubled last year, 31, from the number recorded in 1998, 17, according to the crime analysis bureau.

The heavy caseload for the eight-person homicide team has forced investigators to work overtime and to call on officers from other units for help.

"We hit a little surge here and I commend our personnel for stepping up and responding," said Riverside police Capt. Mike Blakely, who oversees the investigations division.

Detective Bill Barnes, who has been with the homicide team for several months, said he figured he would be busy, but he did not expect to be so busy over such a long time.

"Hopefully, this is not a sign of things to come," he said.

He said detectives usually see a peak in homicides during the summer, when it's warm and when people tend to socialize more.

Police do not know why there have been so many recent slayings.

"I don't think there is any way to predict a homicide," said Sgt. John De La Rosa, who heads the homicide unit. "Because you can't predict it, you can't be proactive."

There have not been any particular patterns to the homicides, though several have been gang related, Blakely said. In most homicides the victims know their killers or are engaged in a lifestyle that might lead to violence, such as prostitution or drug use, police said. It is unusual for a person to be killed by someone they do not know, police say.

Although they have been busy this year, detectives have made arrests in most of their cases.

Of the seven cases this year, police have made arrests in five: two gang-related killings; a fatal stabbing in Casa Blanca; a shooting death outside a University Avenue motel; and an argument between two transients that ended with one of them dead.

Detectives say they have identified suspects in the two other cases. One man was stabbed to death outside a home on Picker Street and another was dumped near an orange grove.

Homicide detectives are well aware of the fact that the number of slayings ebbs and flows. Times have been worse.

In the first five months of 1997, police investigated nearly as many slayings -- 17 -- as they did in all of 1996, when 18 killings were reported. The total for 1997 was 23.

Still, the number of cases this year and last, and the manpower needed for the complicated inquiries, are challenging for police.

"These cases are labor intensive," Barnes said. "You don't solve them in an hour like on TV."

Police tie shootings to gangs // RIVERSIDE: Seven people are injured in four shootings in a two-day period last weekend.
SARAH BURGE
June 11, 2005

RIVERSIDE

When four shootings occurred in 48 hours last weekend, the police were not surprised.

The shootings were not connected, but they may all be gang-related, said Riverside police Sgt. Frank Assumma.

Six people were shot, but no one was killed, police said. A 9-year-old bystander was slightly injured in one incident. The shootings are being investigated as attempted homicides.

"We don't usually see this much violence in as many different areas as we are now," Assumma said

Assumma said police linked the shootings to gangs based on where they happened and other factors that he would not elaborate on.

He and Officer Phil Fernandez summarized the weekend violence:

* About 8 p.m. June 4, a 23-year-old man was walking on Linden Street near Douglas Avenue when he heard shots. He took off running, but a bullet struck his right heel. A 9-year-old girl standing nearby was struck by debris from the gunshots, but received only minor scrapes.

* Shortly after midnight Sunday, a man was in the McDonald's parking lot on University Avenue when three men in a 2000 Chrysler confronted him. One of the men asked where he was from. Someone in the car started shooting and the victim was hit once.

* At about 7:45 p.m. Sunday, a group of teenagers was sitting on a bench in Villegas Park when a man approached them and fired six to eight shots. A 15-year-old boy was hit in the head, and a 17-year-old boy was hit in the torso and arm. Both are expected to recover.

* Later, at about 9:15 p.m., a group of men was playing basketball on Haskell Street near Shawnee Avenue in Casa Blanca when another man approached them and fired five to six shots. A 25-year-old man was hit in the leg, and a 21-year-old man was hit in the torso and right knee.

Incidents involving gangs are difficult to investigate because victims and witnesses are reluctant to talk, Assumma said.

Assumma said the gang picture in Riverside is complicated. Not only are there "indigenous gangs," but there is an influx of big LA gangs across the city.

Overall, gang violence in Riverside has declined, he said. "When I got here, back in 1991, it was just horrendous."

Police ask that anyone with information about the shootings contact the investigations division at (951) 320-8000.

Police fear shootings could lead to gang war - Officials are apprehensive over violence in Riverside
David Ogul
November 18, 1992


RIVERSIDE

A spate of recent drive-by shootings may portend an explosion in gang violence after more than a year of relative calm, law enforcement authorities say. "It's certainly got our attention," said Mike Stachowski, a supervising probation officer in charge of gang suppression in the county juvenile probation office.

"It's getting more active," said Sgt. Alex Tortes, who heads the Riverside Police Department's gang suppression unit. "It's a concern."

The most recent incidents occurred Monday night when a 19-year-old man was critically injured and a 26-year-old man suffered minor injuries in separate drive-by shootings. Those incidents followed a Saturday-night drive-by shooting that critically injured a 17-year-old Riverside girl.

During the previous weekend, three men were wounded, two seriously, in a drive-by shooting that led to a gun battle and an officer-involved shooting near Patterson Park in Riverside's gang-dominated Eastside.

And three weeks ago, Riverside police investigated one of the most intense gunfights in recent memory - a battle that saw more than 100 rounds fired in a modest Arlanza neighborhood near Bryant Park.

No one was hurt.

Besides those incidents, Tortes said, "there are numerous drive-by shootings in Casa Blanca and the Eastside that go unreported (to police). They are occurring almost on a daily basis."

Police investigating Monday-night's Casa Blanca shooting found a number of spent cartridges from earlier, apparently unreported, shootings.

Nobody has been arrested in connection with any of the recent shootings.

But not everyone is convinced that what is occurring in Riverside is an omen of escalating violence.

"Drive-by shootings and gang violence happens in Southern California every night, and Riverside is no different," said Sgt. Ed McBride, who supervised detectives at Monday-night's shootings. "I haven't seen any change."

Police and prosecutors in the Riverside County District Attorney's Office say the relative calm in Riverside gang warfare can be traced to the successful prosecution of one of the largest murder conspiracy cases in the country.

The case stemmed from an investigation that found two Eastside gangs had allied to fight rivals in Casa Blanca and Rubidoux. The alignment led to the March 1991 shooting death of a 15-year-old Casa Blanca boy.

Thirty-one people have since been charged in connection with the slaying. Twenty-five people have either been convicted or pleaded guilty. "A lot of main players were put away," Stachowski said.

"For 15 or 16 months, we saw very little gang violence," said John Davis, a deputy district attorney in the office's gang suppression unit.

But the success in cracking down on the Eastside gangs may have left a vacuum being filled by others eager to demonstrate their viciousness, Davis said.

Still, Davis is not entirely convinced the recent incidents will mean a new round of increased gang violence.

"The last few weeks we've had a number of incidents, but they appear to be isolated cases," he said. "It's too early to draw any conclusions."

The shootout in Arlanza was started when Casa Blanca gang members went into an Arlanza gang's territory to attend a birthday party of a relative, authorities say. The shooting last weekend near Patterson Park was a spontaneous incident sparked when some gang members from Rubidoux spotted some 1200 block Crips and decided to fire away, Davis said.

Saturday's shooting that left the 17-year-old girl injured may have been perpetrated by gang members, but the motive appears to be drug-related, Tortes said.

The Monday-night shootings were gang-related, but they were not related to each other, McBride said, who supervised the crime scenes at the twin locations.

The most serious shooting sent Jose Juarez Medina, 19, of Riverside, to Riverside General Hospital, where he remained last night in serious but stable condition, a nursing supervisor said. He was struck in the kidney area.

Bullets also pierced the wall of a home at Madison Street and Fern Avenue, splintering wood that struck a 3-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl.

Noting the severity of the incident, Davis said: "Gangs do feel the need to retaliate when there are serious shootings. And some of these shootings have been pretty serious."

If there is a renewed outbreak of violence, Riverside police will be more prepared than they have been. The size of Tortes' staff was more than doubled, to five detectives, last summer. And they have developed a good working relationship with the District Attorney's Office.

"We will do whatever we can to keep this from getting out of hand," Tortes said.

"It's really difficult to project what is going to happen," Stachowski said, "but we intend to stay on top of it."

2 officers shot at in Riverside - One bullet hits a door of a police car. Another bullet whizzes by an officer's ear.
David Ogul
December 3, 1993


RIVERSIDE

Two Riverside police officers were fired on early yesterday in a Casa Blanca neighborhood, but authorities insist that the difficult effort to improve relations between police and the largely Hispanic area would not be affected. No one was hurt, although a bullet did hit a door of a police car. No one has been arrested.

Some community leaders later apologized to police Chief Ken Fortier, who told them they had nothing to apologize for.

"I don't think it in any way reflects anything in the relationship between police and the residents of the community, which remain good," he said. "The only thing it underscores is that crime occurs everywhere."

The shootings occurred before 3 a.m. yesterday as Officer Alan Danzek was patrolling the area near Madison Street and Fern Avenue.

"He was just on routine patrol, driving down the street, and he was shot at numerous times in rapid succession," said Sgt. Jim Brading.

Danzek called for backup, and when other officers arrived, they cordoned off a small area and began searching for witnesses and suspects. As they searched, another round was fired, with a bullet whizzing by the ear of Officer Ed Collins.

No witnesses were found and no suspects have been identified.

Police have long had a stormy relationship with many in Casa Blanca, where they have been assaulted, sued and shot at over the years. Police, in turn, have been accused of unprovoked attacks on teen-agers, unwarranted shootings and murder.

Over the past several months, however, police and community residents say they have begun to come closer together through a series of projects, including a community-based policing program, a midnight basketball league and camping trips with disadvantaged youths in the San Jacinto Mountains.

Many in the area say relations between police and residents have not been this good in years. Even those who are critical of whatever gains have been made concede that strides are being taken to open the lines of communication between police and residents.

Press-Enterprise, The (Riverside, CA)-
Another violent clash with police- Police say they were hit by rocks and bottles thrown by a mob as they tried to arrest suspects in two earlier crimes. Some Casa Blanca residents say police roughed up a group of teen-agers without cause.

May 25, 1993
Author: Juan C. Arancibia and Janet Gilmore

Two police officers and at least one Casa Blanca resident were hurt last night in a fracas that began with an arrest in the predominantly Hispanic neighborhood - the latest in a long line of such clashes.

Police and residents offered two versions of the incident. While officers say they were hit by rocks and bottles thrown by a mob as they tried to arrest suspects in two earlier crimes, community members said police roughed up a group of teen-agers without provocation.

"They're provoking this trouble," said Dora Sosa, the mother of a woman who may have been injured during the disturbance with police. "They're supposed to be protecting you, not harassing you and then laughing at you."

Sgt. Dan Padelford and Lt. Jerry Carroll said it all began when a group of women invaded a house on Trey Avenue in Arlanza about 6:30 p.m., attacked a woman at the house with a screwdriver, puncturing her lung, and took a microwave oven. Information on her condition was not available last night.

A half-hour later, the occupants of a Toyota Celica matching the description of a vehicle involved in the break-in took a purse from a woman walking on Victoria Avenue at Cridge Street in the Eastside.

Then, about 7:30 p.m., a police helicopter unit spotted the Celica in Casa Blanca, Padelford and Carroll said. Officers on the ground then proceeded to the area of Fern Avenue and Cary Street, where the car had stopped and its occupants had gotten out.

Officers Rod McMillan and Richard Prince tried to arrest individuals walking away from the car when the area turned to a scene "like a barroom brawl," Padelford said.

He said a crowd of people nearby surrounded the officers and tried to wrest away the suspects from the officers.

By the time about 15 officers arrived to assist, a disturbance was in full force and officers were showered by rocks and bottles, the police officials said. McMillan and Prince were taken to Parkview Community Hospital Medical Center with hand injuries.

A 17-year-old Casa Blanca teen was bitten in the leg by a police dog. Padelford and Carroll said the dog immediately charged the teen after he shoved an officer.

Carroll said the minors showed signs of being under the influence of PCP and were taken to the hospital for blood tests.

It took about five minutes to quell the disturbance, Padelford said. Two adults and three juveniles - all from Casa Blanca - were arrested. The adults were identified as Mona Perez, 30, and Danny Ahumada, 18.

Names of minors are not released by police. The suspects were held on suspicion of battery on a peace officer and lynching, which is defined as taking a suspect from police custody.

By late last night more than a dozen people from Casa Blanca sat outside the Riverside General hospital to await word on the five people they believed to be injured. They also vented their frustrations with the Police Department and recalled what happened.

Teresa De La Rosa, 31, said police cars and a helicopter converged on the neighborhood for no apparent reason. Residents estimated the conflict drew 25 officers and a crowd of at least 150.

Two officers held down one person by his shirt, hitting him with their hands, residents said. Meanwhile, De La Rosa said, another officer grabbed another person and hit him while putting him in a police car.

At the same time, two officers pulled 14-year-old Veronica Savala, by the shirt. Savala said this happened after she told police officers to leave her cousin, Danny Ahumada, alone.

Onlookers, including De La Rosa and her sister, tried to stop the officers from grabbing Veronica. De La Rosa said officers then turned on those who attempted to intervene. In the process, De La Rosa said, police grabbed her sister and held a baton on De La Rosa and her husband.

An officer ordered a police dog to attack, De La Rosa and Savala said, and the dog bit two teens. Police said only one was bitten.

Residents who saw or heard about the fracas were outraged last night, expressing anger over what they considered to be police harassment and unprovoked attacks on Casa Blanca residents.

"It always seems to be a white cop who starts all the trouble," said Dora Sosa.

When police officers escorted one suspect to the hospital emergency room, a group of residents began shouting for justice, for police officers who protect them.

Philbin is a street in the Arlanza area of Riverside. So they must be talking about Arlanza 13 or a click, but I've never heard of them besides this article, or seen any SS Philbin hit ups, but who knows, I could be wrong. The only gangs I know of in that area is A13, Tiny Winos, SS Riva and the 5150's, and LSR to a lesser extent.
