Two men are still on the loose after a robbery shoot out incident that took place in a  Compton Los Angeles pot shop. Four masked men entered the shop and pulled out guns and shot the person working behind the counter. The employee was wearing a bullet proof vest but was shot in the face and neck, and later was released from the hospital, surviving his injuries.

Once suspect was shot dead, one was found and two others are on the run and wanted by police.

The official LAPD announcement is as follows:

On April 3, 2022, at 6:54 p.m., Kahlel Malik Lundy (23yrs old), Keith Terrion Rachel (21yrs old), and two other individuals entered the “Smoke Shop” located at the 1500 block of S. Wilmington Avenue, Compton. The four individuals attempted to commit an armed robbery of the store and pointed their handguns at an employee. The employee, an armed security guard for the business, withdrew his handgun, and a gun battle between the armed men ensued.  The suspects left the “Smoke Shop” and fled the scene.  The employee sustained gunshot wounds to his face and neck and was later released from the hospital. About 30 minutes after the botched robbery, deputies responded to Martin Luther King Hospital regarding a gunshot victim. Investigators discovered the gunshot victim was one of the “Smoke Shop” robbers whom the store employee had shot.

The second suspect was apprehended by LASD the following day (April 4th). Kahlel Lundy and Keith Rachel were identified as participating in the robbery and are currently at large. Both Kahlel Lundy and Keith Rachel are wanted for murder, and LASD Homicide Bureau is seeking the public’s assistance in locating them.
