Mr. Hipolito was taken to St. Frances Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
“Mr. Hipolito’s pregnant wife was shot in the belly. She, the couple’s premature baby, and the sailor’s 16-year old brother, were all hospitalized with stable vital signs.
“The sailor, who worked as an explorer at the Sheriff’s Compton Station before joining the Navy in 2003, apparently got into a fight with suspected gang members, one of whom started shooting inside the store in the 15200 block of South Atlantic Boulevard.
“Mr. Hipolito was assigned to the USS Germantown, an amphibious assault ship currently at port at San Diego.
“No immediate arrests were made, but images of two suspects were recorded by surveillance video, police said.”
Therefore, on motion of Supervisor Burke, seconded by Supervisor Knabe, unanimously carried, the Board established a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Osiel Hipolito who was shot and killed in a store of a strip mall in the 15200 block of S.
