Police to search landfill for gun in high school goalie slaying
Francisco Rodriguez, a 17-year-old senior at El Camino Real High School, was shot to death Jan. 11 in Winnetka as he stepped into his front yard after a girl knocked at his door.
Two suspects were later arrested: 19-year-old Elizabeth Ibarra, who police believe lured the victim outside, and 24-year-old Jason Schumann, who they say fired the shots from a waiting car.
Schumann was charged with murder and is being held on $2-million bail. Ibarra has not been charged but remains in jail on a probation violation. She had recently served a jail sentence for forgery.
Police believe the gun may be in the Calabasas landfill in Agoura. A systematic search by detectives and volunteers was set to start at 10 a.m., according to a spokesman for the LAPD.
A romantic conflict is thought to be the motive for the killing.
