LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has officially charged the man accused of gunning down another man in Industry.
Elias Haro Rodriguez, 25, was charged with one count of murder with the special allegation that he used a firearm, according to Greg Risling of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Rodriguez reportedly donned a hard hat and a mask during the shooting of Juan Carlos Castro Flores, 50. Rodriguez fled the scene after the shooting around 9:35 a.m. The construction site, located in the 14700 block of Nelson Avenue, was very active with workers on scene, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

Rodriguez is 25 years old, but was previously described by the Sheriff’s Information Bureau as being in his 40s.
Flores died at the scene, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
Arraignment was continued to July 25 in Pomona Superior Court.
Rodriguez faces a possibility of life in state prison.
