A man died following a drive-by shooting in Carson on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
The shooting was first reported about 2:10 p.m. in the 21700 block of Dolores Street, just south of Carson Street, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department officials said.
The victim, initially described only as a man, succumbed to a gunshot wound to his “upper torso” at a hospital, Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said in a written statement.
He had been walking along the sidewalk with another man when he was shot by someone in a passing vehicle, officials said. The victim’s companion was not injured.
“There is no suspect description at this time, however, a dark colored, four-door sedan was seen fleeing the scene of the shooting,” according to Navarro-Suarez. “The apparent drive-by shooting appears to be gang related.”
No further details were released.
Anyone with information was asked to contact the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
