The car wash where Orlando Anderson was shot.
Crime Scene Location in Los Angeles, California, United States.
This is the location where Crips gang member Orlando Anderson was shot dead.
It is situated on the corner of Alondra Avenue and South Oleander Avenue in the Compton neighborhood of Los Angeles.
At the time of the shooting, this was the home of "Rob's Car Wash". However, the property was demolished at some point between 2018 and 2019 in order to make way for the new Compton High School.
Anderson is the prime suspect in the murder of Tupac Shakur. It is believed that he may have shot the rap star in revenge for an altercation that occurred earlier that evening.
Surveillance footage from the MGM Grand showed Shakur and his entourage attacking Anderson shortly after a boxing match between Mike Tyson and Bruce Seldon.
This has led to speculation that the Southside Crips member rounded up his fellow gang members and retaliated.
Although he denied that he had any involvement in the rapper's death, he was formally named as a suspect in an affidavit by the Compton Police Department.
Roughly 16 months after the incident in Las Vegas, Anderson lost his life in a gang-related shootout between two rival Crips factions.
On May 29th, 1998, the 23-year-old and two other men were fatally wounded at Rob's Car Wash, which stood on this corner. It is believed that the dispute occurred over an unpaid drug debt.
Orlando Anderson (23), Michael Stone (41) and Jerry Stone (24) were all killed during the shootout.
A fourth man by the name of Michael Reed Dorrough was also injured. However, he survived and was later sentenced to three life terms in prison.
According to the police, Anderson pulled into the car wash after he spotted Jerry Stone, who owed him money at the time. After a brief argument, the pair reportedly opened fire on each other.
This led to a gun battle between the two sides.
On one hand, there was Anderson and his passenger, Michael Reed Dorrough. On the other hand, there was Jerry Stone and his uncle, Michael Stone.
Although Dorrough was the only man who survived the encounter, his injuries were so serious that he crashed his vehicle while attempting to flee the crime scene.
In 1999, Dorrough was sentenced to three life terms without the possibility of parole.
This property has been demolished.
