Fugitive Profile as of October 13th, 2015: (based on LAPD Most Wanted website)
Sex: Male Descent: Hispanic Height: 5' 4 Weight: 140 pounds Hair: Black Eyes: Brown Date of Birth: Apr 30, 1973 Age: 25* (at time of crime, would be 42 years old as of this posting) Who to call if you've seen him: Contact Detective Hawley at 310-548-7621
"Suspect has know associates living in Tijuana and crosses the border frequently. Suspect has been featured in local newspapers and was depicted on "Americas Most Wanted". Suspect shot an unarmed 12 year old girl in the back with an assault rifle during a drive-by."
Thoughts? The above was from the LAPD Most Wanted page, which mentions this case was on AMW. Obviously, I'm assuming the 12-year old girl wasn't Magallon's target, but in gang and overall violence, it is why it's so important to catch these guys. This was a near tragedy and a miracle it didn't end in death.

I'm undecided on when I'll access the full article, but I was browsing through Newslibrary and saw a brief piece on a 1996 piece saying Jaime Magallon was to be aired on January 6, 1996. They mention the shooting occurred the previous summer which makes this case from 1995, not 1998. Again we can blame the LAPD for not updating their website profile for Jaime properly.

Accessed the newslibrary article and I have some additional information. The shooting occurred on Aug 23, 1995 and a 13-year old girl was also shot and wounded. The 12-year old was paralyzed from the waist down. Authorities say that the girls were deliberately shot which would not make this a case of mistaken identity or a case of shots being fired all over the place.
Magallon had a tattoo in 1995 on the middle finger of his left hand. The tattoo depicts a thick cross with a string of rosary beads running across the top.
As of June 9th, 2018, Magallon is still listed on the LAPD most wanted website, which granted is not the most updated website, but enough for me to reasonably assume that he's probably still wanted as of this update.

Just wanted to add that Newspapers.com uploaded a 1995 article rather after the shooting happened. Readers should be aware that Jaime Magallon was using the street alias "Lil Diablo" at the time of the shooting.
