Killed The Wrong Guy

Los Angeles, CA -

A hot-headed gang member from Boyle Heights is now in prison...

It's a case that has powerful ties to the Mexican Mafia.

FOX 11 Investigative Reporter Chris Blatchford reports that the defendant picked the wrong guy to kill in this Video Report.

Jesus Hernandez, known as "Menace," was only 23-years old when he appeared in court in May, 2011.

He's now in prison..... convicted of a killing that may have marked him for death.
Prison insiders tell us, they're not sure where they'll put him.

He murdered a gang shotcaller named Robert "Lil Joker" Gonzales who had direct ties to the Mexican Mafia.

Both men belonged to the Big Hazard gang -- one of L.A.'s oldest -- rooted here in the eastside Ramona Gardens housing projects.

"Menace" was paroled in 2010 after serving time for shooting at two LAPD officers. Then just 2-months after his release, LAPD Detective Louis Zorilla says "Menace" accused one of his own homeboys of stealing a gun from him.

Investigators now say "Menace" - in prison, will have to be looking over his shoulder all the time. As one cop notes...Menace "absolutely killed the wrong guy".

It's been 15-months since "Lil Joker" was shot down here in the parking lot, and out of respect, or fear…

No one has erased the graffiti written here in his memory.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    Friday, August 1 2014 10:38 PM EDT2014-08-02 02:38:22 GMT
    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
