Sergio Sanchez was found inside his Mitsubishi on the Roxford Street offramp by authorities responding to a traffic obstruction call just before 1 a.m. on March 14.

Sanchez was likely shot while driving westbound on the freeway somewhere between Polk and Roxford streets, police announced following their initial investigation.

“The initial signs right now point to some kind of a road rage incident on the 210 Freeway westbound here,” Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Paul Vernon said. “It appears that the shots probably came from the driver’s side.”

Sanchez was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 1:30 a.m., according to coroner’s records sited by the Los Angeles Times Homicide Report.

The $50,000 reward was offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of whoever was responsible for Sanchez’s death.

The announcement was made during a news 9:30 a.m. news conference at the LAPD’s Mission Police Station.
