Central City, LA: Boyfriend sought in shooting that killed one and injured three

After a shooting that killed one woman and injured three other people early Saturday morning on South Roman Street in the Hoffman Triangle area of Central City, police have identified the boyfriend of the woman who survived the shooting as the triggerman and are seeking the public’s help in looking for him.

Larry J. Haynes, 38, also known as “Sly,” is wanted for a single charge of the first-degree murder of 26-year-old Tiara Reynolds and three counts of the attempted first-degree murder of the other victims, police said.

Haynes was outside a home in the 2800 block of South Roman with the Reynolds and the others around 2:40 a.m. Saturday when an argument broke out, and Haynes pulled a gun and then shot all four victims, police said in the release. Reynolds was found dead at the scene, lying on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds. Another man was shot in the head and remains in critical condition, while Haynes’ 32-year-old girlfriend and another man were both hit by bullets as well but listed in stable condition.

Haynes’ previous arrest record includes a charge of first-degree murder during a crime, an attack on a police officer, domestic violence, extortion and gun, drug and theft charges, police said. The murder charge dates to 1993, court records show.
