Mocobizscene- Parents in Los Angeles are expressing concerns about safety after a 14-year-old boy was fatally shot near a Cudahy elementary school. This tragic incident is one of several fatal shootings that occurred overnight.
In Los Angeles, the police are currently investigating three separate shootings involving teenagers that occurred on Sunday night and continued into Monday morning. On Sunday night, a tragic incident unfolded in Panorama City, involving a shooting that left a 16-year-old injured and claimed the life of a 17-year-old.
Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Alberto Carvalho expressed his deep concern about the issue, stating, “It is truly disturbing for me, not just as an educator, but also as a father. I strongly believe that we should not forget about this, and I want our community to remember it as well.”
On Monday morning, Carvalho shared a response on X (formerly Twitter) addressing the night of violence, describing the shootings as “unacceptable carnage”.
Carvalho emphasized the importance of being a strong force that facilitates the connection of resources. According to him, there should be a collaborative effort between cities, counties, and LAUSD. He acknowledged the positive steps taken by LAUSD in investing in professionals like counselors, school psychologists, and psychiatric social workers to identify early trauma and prevent potential repercussions. However, Carvalho stressed the need for similar investments to be made in the community as well.
