“Los Angeles County Jail records show Covina police arrested him on Oct. 27, 2020 on a misdemeanor charge. He was released on $1,000 bail. The outcome of that case was not immediately clear. Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”
Absolutely heartbreaking. When will Democrat leaders take action to stop the rampant crime in cities they run?https://t.co/ob8KcvB0KT

Shawn Laval Smith, 31, should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the LAPD.
He allegedly walked into a furniture store on North La Brea Avenue on Jan. 13 and stabbed Kupfer to death moments after she texted a friend to say a man in the store was making her uncomfortable.
“She sent a text to a friend letting her know that there was someone inside the location that was giving her a bad vibe,” LAPD Lt. John Radtke said of the Jan. 13 slaying. “Regrettably, that person did not see the text immediately.”
Anyone who sees him should call 911 and no approach, police said Tuesday evening.

Police said he’s been spotted in numerous locations around Southern California – including Pasadena, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Covina and San Diego. They also included a mug shot showing Smith wearing a face mask – suggesting a recent run-in with the law sometime after the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Just a half-hour after the alleged stabbing at the Croft House, a luxury furniture store, police said surveillance cameras picked up Smith at a 7-Eleven, where he bought a vape pen in cash.
