Monrovia Murder During Relay for Life

I did a double take when I saw the headline too. 23 year old George Rostran died as a result of sustaining gunshot wounds in Monrovia's Library Park? Unfortunately, the tragedy is all too real.

See the Mary Frances Gurton SGVT article; see also the Elizabeth Hsing-Huei Chou SM Weekly article. As the Weekly says:

Participants in the Relay For Life, a 24-hour cancer walk-a-thon, were doing the circuit at Library Park at the time of the shooting.

A reader emailed to say a friend of theirs was at the Relay for Life, and "it was a terrifying experience with everyone hitting the ground" when the shots were fired. The incident may or may not have been gang related; we hear that gang activity in Monrovia is under-reported. Could this be true? In Monrovia?

There are plenty of comments (some from people claiming to have been there) concerning the shooting here—including a few comments about media coverage of the event in the local papers.

I live one-half mile from Library Park and heard nothing about this shooting until I read about it on Foothill Cities. Thanks to this blog, I am so much better informed about my neighborhood and the surrounding cities. Keep it up!

The Monrovia Girl Softball team was also right there - maybe they will finally close that place.

Less than one year ago, a man and woman were shot dead during the day in front of my friend's house in Monrovia. The information on this murder never surfaced in the local media. My friend was terrified to leave her house. After that incident, she decided that she no longer wanted to live in Monrovia .

I am sick of those in charge downplaying serious issues that affect their supposed constituents: my school district, my employer, my country and now, my city have all lied to me.
