CR.UNINC#1.0819.BS - S. WHITTIER, "Little TJ": Rigo Americano, 10, (L), and Paul Lopez, 11, (R), stand near the entrance to "Little TJ," in Sunshine Acres, a small section of unincorporated S. Whittier where they live. The night before, two local men who were shot nearby collapsed next to the red car behind the boys, (upper right), and were taken away by paramedics. According to neighbors, this area is a hotbed for wild parties and trouble-makers; especially during the weekend. When neighbors complain during these parties, whose epicenter is at the end of this long driveway, even the police prefer to stay safely out on the street.
