I walked by the former site of Cheque Tires in South El Monte the other day and did a double-take. What was once a vibrant local tire shop is now a burnt-out husk.
What happened here? It’s the scene of a molotov cocktail attack that left three teenagers dead and a fireman injured.
As of now, the site is still there, collapsed buildings and all. It’s an eerie place, that’s for sure.
