The victim was reportedly sitting in his vehicle when he was shot many times and died on Tuesday night in the Vermont Knolls community of South Los Angeles, according to the authorities.
Officer Annie Hernandez, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, stated that around 10:11 p.m., a subject approached the car that was parked near the junction of 83rd Street and Figueroa Street and shot at the man who was inside the vehicle.
The officers that responded to the scene determined that the individual had passed away. As county coroner officials sought to contact the victim’s next of kin, the only information available about the victim was that he was a male in his 40s.
The police have stated that they do not have a description of the culprit or any vehicle that may be associated with the crime.
