GRANADA HILLS CNS) — A Simi Valley man is behind bars for allegedly shooting a woman to death in Granada Hills in July.
Javier Flores, 24, was arrested Sept. 12 at his home and booked on suspicion of murder in the death of Cheyenne Brown, 24, who was shot about 10:25 p.m. July 22 in the 16600 block of Chatsworth Street, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
A motive for the crime was not disclosed.
“Brown had arrived home from work … when she was gunned down next to her vehicle,” according to an LAPD statement. “Witnesses described a full-size truck fleeing the location after the shooting. Brown left behind a 2-year-old daughter.”
LAPD detectives served warrants Sept. 12 in Simi Valley, Granada Hills and Mission Hills.
The murder charge, filed Monday, includes the special circumstance allegation that Flores intentionally killed the woman while lying in wait.
Prosecutors will decide later whether to seek the death penalty against Flores, who remains jailed without bail while awaiting arraignment Oct. 7 at the San Fernando courthouse.
