Authorities received a “shots fired” call about 10 p.m. and located a black Mercedes-Benz near the intersection of Cantara Street and Coldwater Canyon Avenue, Los Angeles Police Department Detective Eloy Navarro said.

Officers discovered evidence of a shooting at the location when they arrived, Navarro said.

An unidentified man found inside the car was pronounced dead at the scene, Navarro said.

It was unclear how many shots were fired, but people at the scene told KTLA there were multiple casings in the street.

Investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting and no suspect description was given.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Police Department at 818-374-9550 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
