Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michel Moore will join with homicide investigators and victims’ family members Wednesday to ask for the public’s help in solving the killing of two 17-year-old boys in a shooting at a street carnival in Lincoln Heights.

Investigators are seeking witnesses to the shooting that occurred around 9 p.m. Sunday at Broadway and Workman Street.

Javier Mejia and Winfield Lee, both of Los Angeles, died at the scene, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office reported.

According to police, a male suspect fired multiple shots at the boys and ran away. A motive was not known.

Moore, investigators and relatives of the boys are scheduled to gather at the LAPD’s Hollenbeck Community Police station to ask for leads in the case.

Anyone with information can call 877-LAPD-247.
