Authorities are offering a $50,000 reward for information about a car-to-car shooting in Baldwin Hills that killed a driver and a pedestrian and injured a bicyclist earlier this week.
The incident occurred about 8:30 p.m. Monday in the 4800 block of West Rodeo Road.
Police saw a person in a car shoot at another driver and officers began chasing the suspect, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The driver who was struck, Harrison Francis Kristol, 20, subsequently ran over a pedestrian and both victims died. The pedestrian was identified as Laroyice McFarland, 22, during a news conference announcing the reward.
The alleged shooter continued evading police and eventually hit a teen on a bike who was critically injured. Frederick Bowen, 18, remains hospitalized with broken ribs, a fractured arm and a tube in his chest, his mother, Tiffany Bowen, said at the news conference.
She said the victims in the incident were "minding their own business" and that what occurred to them "isn't fair."
“We're just asking for justice for Laroyice,” his mother, Shari Seawright, said. She said that her son loved skateboarding and young people to skate. He was a student at Santa Monica Community College, Seawright said.
"This is just a tragedy and we’re really hurting behind this," she added.
No arrests have been made in the case. What led up to the shooting and a possible motive remain unknown.
Deputy Chief Dennis Kato said three other people were shot in other areas of the district. He pleaded with the community to help stop gun violence in the area.
