The mother of a teenager arrested for allegedly killing his girlfriend said her son was suffering from “mental issues” during the incident. 

Jonjon Crummie, 18, surrendered to police at 4 p.m. Monday at USC Medical Center where he was arrested on suspicion of homicide in the murder of Irais Acosta, 19.

On Wednesday, Crummie was being held on $2 million bail, charged with homicide and personal and intentional discharge of a firearm causing great bodily injury and death.

Crummie’s mother, Yvonne Lomeli told KTLA Channel 5 that she took her son to the hospital for treatment after he became suicidal over Acosta’s death.

“He said, ‘I was sitting down talking to her and the next thing you know, I just remember yelling, and when I looked, she was already dead,’” Lomeli recalled her son saying. According to Lomeli, there were “a lot of mental issues” behind the incident.

Acosta’s older brother, Juan, told the Pasadena Star-News that his sister had distanced herself from family and friends and deleted her social media accounts because of Crummie, who he called “jealous and antisocial.” The victim’s brother also said Crummie was involved in gang activity, drank alcohol and smoked marijuana.

Mat Fetterloff, 24, told the paper that the couple regularly argued and that Crummie lived there with his mother and two small children. According to Fetterloff, someone said, “Why did you do this?” during an argument Sunday morning.

It was not known whether Crummie was on medication or received previous treatment for any mental disorders.

Police found Acosta’s body shortly before 9 a.m. Sunday after responding to calls of shots fired from the apartment the couple shared in the 1500 block of Raymond Avenue. Acosta, a student at Pasadena City College, was declared dead at the scene. Crummie was seen fleeing from the apartment shortly after the shooting.

The couple had been dating for less than a year, but had been living together for about two months.

“Tragically, incidents of domestic violence continue to be a national problem,” said Pasadena police Lt. Tracey Ibarra said. “The victim’s family was deeply impacted by her death. We hope the suspect’s expedient arrest by detectives provides them with some sense of comfort.”  

Acosta’s parents have started a gofundme account to help raise $20,000 for her funeral expenses:
Friends and family members held a candlelight vigil for Acosta on Monday at her mother’s home on Garfield Avenue in Northwest Pasadena, a few blocks from where the teenager was shot.

People with information regarding the shooting are being asked to contact Lt. Terysa Rojas at (626) 744-4241, or they can report what they know anonymously through Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 (TIPS) or

It's not the guns that have been causing mass shooting for the last decade or two, it's the BIG PHARMA billions-dollar medications industry.

We really do need to know if he was on SSRIs.

Oh Dan, you're at it again. I thought you were going to get help? A street punk shoots his girlfriend and you're blaming the medical industry? Why not point the finger at his parents who failed miserably at raising a child...kind of like you did I'm sure.

Suck my ass russtroll, REGARDLESS of how low-rent this boy's parent's may be or how miserably they may have raised him, this young man seemingly is also a prevailing guinea pig of KKKorporate America's pharmaceutical industrial complex. I'm talking about an institution of poison distribution where the chemicals being injected into the blood stream of our society are tragically causing more pain, suffering, and murder, than they have ever proved to significantly alleviate.

But you're really not concerned about intelligently discussing or otherwise discovering what collateral reasons are causing so many of our nation's young people (besides the prisoner noted above) to so impulsively cross the line from even just marginal circumstances of self-control into an irresistible motivation of murderous rage, you just want to express yourself like a butt-sucking colon-troll.

Tell me also russtroll, why do you still feel relentlessly motivated to opportunistically cyber-stalk me like an ad-hominim spewing staphylococcus? What kind of corporately sponsored, mental health chemicals are you sucking down on an hourly basis? Does your LE masters know about this?

You and the subject perp above most likely have a whole lot of emotional issues in common.
