Armenian Power 13 try extorting "Royal Fresh" owner

"A shootout that wounded at least one person outside a Los Angeles market on Monday, October 28, 2019 involved the business owner and members of a street gang who had been trying to extort him out of $100,000, a police official said. Employees were washing gang graffiti from the walls of Royal Fresh Market in North Hollywood when armed gang members returned shortly after 8:00am, Sgt. Frank Preciado said. "What the suspects weren't counting on was the victim was armed too," Preciado said.

"The market owner had two weapons, and he and the gang members exchanged dozens of rounds that struck several cars and left the parking lot littered with spent casings, the sergeant said. One male gang member was shot in the shoulder and arrested when he collapsed while trying to run away, Preciado said. His injuries were not life-threatening. Police searched for three other men who sped off in a light-colored Audi. Witnesses reported seeing one fleeing gunman limping, but it wasn't known if he was shot, Preciado said. The sergeant said the graffiti contained obscenities and the amount of money demanded by the gunmen: $100,000."

"Members of the gang Armenian Power 13 had been trying for weeks to extort the market owner, who is also of Armenian descent, Preciado said. He was being interviewed by investigators, and his name was not released. The owner told detectives he had a long gun and an automatic handgun, but investigators didn't immediately recover the weapons, Preciado said. The market is in a small strip mall in the San Fernando Valley, about 15 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, California."

NBC news released footage of the shooting, the owner's son was there when this went down, and he pulled out a semi-automatic rifle and started shooting at the AP13's in the parking lot LOL, motherfucker wasn't playin around, one of the gang member's was hit by gunfire, but survived, they also said Armenian Power 13 was trying to extort money for the past couple of month's from the owner, and threatened to kill his son if he didn't pay up, apparently his son's ex-girlfriend also wanted her dog back, and she is affiliated with the AP13 gang.
