Three Long Beach men have been charged with murder in connection to the death of 26-year-old Jeffrey Keo last month, authorities announced Tuesday.
Keo, a Long Beach resident, died at a local hospital two hours after he was gunned down just north of the city’s Lincoln neighborhood at about 9:00PM on Tuesday, November 10, near 14th Street and Gundry Avenue, according to the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD).
Officers arrested Angel Campo, 18, on Thursday, December 3, on an unrelated assault charge and the next day booked him on an arrest warrant for Keo’s murder, officials stated.
Hector Montiel, 28, was booked on an arrest warrant for Keo’s murder on Saturday, December 5.
Campo and Montiel were arraigned on Monday, December 7 and are being held in Los Angeles County Jail on a $2 million bail.
On December 5, 19-year-old Esteban Panchi was arrested and booked for murder by Long Beach police. He was charged on Tuesday, December 8 and is being held at Long Beach City Jail on $2 million bail.
Officers originally arrested a 17-year-old Long Beach male in connection with the murder after an hours-long manhunt the night of the shooting.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed murder and gang enhancement charges against the unidentified teen—who will be tried as an adult. He was also charged with one count of robbery for an unrelated incident that happened on Sunday, November 8, officials stated.
The police said the victim was not a gang member. Since his death, his family has established a gofundme page to help pay for his funeral services and provide for his family.
