LASD Homicide Det’s Seek Info in Altadena Shooting Death, Present $20K Reward from Board of Supervisors

On Thursday, October 30, 2014, Victim Christopher Walker was shot to death near the intersection of Fair Oaks Avenue and Calaveras Street, Altadena, while patronizing a local restaurant. About 4:30 p.m., as Christopher sat on the outdoor patio, a light-colored sedan drove up. A passenger got out of the car and fired a gun multiple times at the young man, striking him.

Christopher was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Christopher was just 29 years old at the time of his death. He grew up in Altadena and was working in Los Angeles.
