4 (7:45 PM Shooting Call) Sheriff's Dept. Homicide Bureau - Sgt. Ray Verdugo says they are seeing a lot of homicides, a vast increase. Last year was a record-breaking year in the entire county and this year they are ahead of last year. There seems to be an underlying sense of frustration and anger unleashing real rapidly, people seem to have a shorter fuse and are more angry about lesser things. The wrong look will kill you. He often sees it as fame or infamy. If you can't be famous, be infamous - try to assassinate the president. Be known in your own crowd as the meanest guy or the guy who shot and killed someone. It's a tragedy. If he had the job and the education maybe he could give you the answer why. On patrol he says it is a warm, beautiful night, very comfortable, one of those unfortunate things that brings people to southern California. There is a murder in the Fireside station on Hopper in South Central. Detective Dave Castillo and Deputy Tanya Edwards are on scene. She says the guy and his 6 buddies were dancing and having a ball with their shirts off. Then 8 guys came up to them and told them to put their shirts back on which they refused and a fight ensued between all 14 of them. One guy pulled out a semi-automatic, then another came out. One is DOA and there are 7 injured. The mans body is in the street and they take pictures. His sister ID's the body. Several witnesses come forward to talk to them including people involved and hopefully the suspect, but it's a pipe dream. He's an 18-19 year old youthful looking guy shot dead in the street for no reason. He took off his shirt, was dancing at a party and someone took offense and shot him dead. It's ludicrous, but a sign of the times. A guy at the station says the shooter fired 3-4 shots at Marco. Another witness says in Mexico quite often they take a stand of revenge. If someone kills a good person, they seek revenge to kill them. He is only 15, but would kill him if he had a gun. A man is killed and a cousin will hunt them down. They don't judge, but if they apply customs from another land, this person will get justice if they don't get him first. Some friend or relative will get him. If he goes back to Mexico, they will kill him. (2:45 PM) South East County - Sheriff's Station (911 Call Choking Child) Deputy David Halm takes the call of a baby having a seizure inside a supermarket.

They don't see anyone coming at him. He says a woman walked out of her apartment with her dog. There was a figure in the front corner of the apartment, he has his left arm up right now. His finger was pointing at them, he had a gun and they zoomed in on all fours. He heard the man call in, he said homosexuality had to be stopped at all costs. It was pretty aggressive. Sean says it all looks normal to him. He says they split right before they came in a car. There's nothing they can do now, call us again if you see them.

He’s told an undercover bought from him personally two days ago. Now he wants to lie to him, he didn’t just fall of the turnip truck. Wayne says he doesn’t want his house torn up, but he has no stash. They’ll tear up every inch of the place until they find it, how are they supposed to trust him? In a woman’s purse they find an 8 ball, crank and a syringe. The phone rings and Dennis answers it. He says Wayne is tied up right now. It’s his boss, he’s late for work.

He came to get his money back and she said no, it’s been worn. The cop says to give him another hat and they can all leave. They want to give him the money back, but he doesn’t want it, he wants the Chicago Bulls hat. They pull it down from a display and he says it’s fine. Robin says they come over to this country and try to make a living. The only way they can survive it to keep it open 20 hours a day from 6am to 2am. There was a communication breakdown and they think they are getting ripped off, it’s a couple hours pay to them. To us it’s not big deal.

A woman was on the phone calling the police and heard someone yell, "Where's the money? Get on the floor!" One had a red rag in their pocket so it seems gang related. They had a gang shooting two weeks ago where kids shot at cops with AK-47s. They think they know where the guys are. It's ironic that up on the wall is a Crimestoppers security alarms sign.

Lt. Joe Brown investigates, talks on the phone and has a theory about it. They check the closets and the fridge, but there is no alcohol in the house. They talk to the neighbor. He's known them for years, they have no problems and he saw them a few days ago to pay the rent. He has no idea why someone would want to kill her. They check the stab wound and see it was a large wound that must've been 12 inch knife. They roll her over and to take pictures. They load the body up and the blood is leaking through the sheets.

They all know he murdered his wife and he can't face up to the fact that he did it. Something happened to make him mad. How did the blood get on the top of his shoes? He says he doesn't know what it was, it was there for days. He thought it was her paint or Crayolas. (4:46 PM Homicide Bureau) They ask if he washed his hands after finding her. They take samples from between his fingers to see if he has blood stains. If it's positive it'll change to purple or pink and it won't matter if he washed his hands. His hands are very sweaty and he says it's from his medication. She continues to swab his hands. It's not a specific blood test, it's presumptive to allow them to investigate further. They pull out his shoes that have red on them as well as hair and possible brain matter. They talk to the stepson and ask if George is capable of harming his mother. He doesn't know, she met him when he was 5 and he's 18 now. He's never seen him get mad, he raised his voice once in a great while and he's a soft mellow person.

There was no exit wound. She puts the shoe on a microscope and they wonder about the power. She says the red is clear like strawberry jam, certainly not blood. His story is going to stand, maybe she let someone in. They'll have to get prints from the knife, maybe she stabbed the suspect and he stabbed her. She brought a knife to a gunfight. (2:30 PM Friday) There are no prints on the knife and no motive for the husband. It could've been a rapist or an opportunist. George says when he went to call 911 the phone was unplugged.
