Second Golden West Avenue Murder Suspect Surrenders

Christopher Gilbert Lopez, 18, surrendered at the Alhambra courthouse on Tuesday, August 14, 2007. Lopez is the other suspect wanted for investigation by detectives in the July 25 drive-in shooting murder on Golden West Avenue.   

The other suspect, Philip Adrian Guerra, turned himself in on August 7, 2007.

Both suspects were originally suppose to turn themselves in after arrangements with family members; however, on August 7, police issued photographs of the suspects, because they did not do so.

Guerra is currently being housed in the North County Correctional Facility in Saugus, California. He was assigned there on August 12.

Bail has been set at $4.4 million dollars.

He is expected to appear at the Alhambra municipal court on September 19, 2007 at 8:30 am.

The murder of Deandre Netter has worried some residents of Temple City. At a recent City Council meeting, one member of the Council urged patience in allowing the Sheriffs to bring in the suspects.

Netter’s murder followed a local stabbing at Carl’s Jr. on May 25, 2007. Don Bailey-Meyer, 20, was allegedly attacked and stabbed in the parking lot. A hate-crimes team is investigating the case.

Lopez surrendered to the authorities at the Alhambra courthouse around 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Bail has been set at $3.05 million dollars.

He will be housed at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles. A court date has not been set for Lopez.
