Iran Moreno-Balvaneda Shot Dead

Iran Moreno-Balvaneda Death – Family and loved ones mourn the death of a 13-year-old boy who was killed by a stray bullet on Saturday, November 21, 2021, in the 900 block of North Raymond Avenue.

Moreno-Balvaneda was in his bedroom playing video games when he was shot. Police reported that several shots were fired in the area when a single bullet entered a window of a home, striking the teen. EMS quickly arrived at the scene when Iran’s family called for help.

A report said they performed CPR and transported him to a local hospital, where he was declared dead.

Pasadena Police Chief John E. Perez said in a statement, “He is a straight-A student. He spends all his time inside his room, with his family, and today is not there.” Perez made it known to the press that has been an increase in gang activity and shootings in the city, despite stepped-up patrols. He also clarified that neither the teen nor his family was the intended target of the bullet.

At the moment, no suspects have been identified. “We don’t know who did this yet, but we will. We will catch these criminals and we will catch them quickly,” Perez added.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for Iran funeral arrangements to assist his family in this time of distress.
