Detectives sought the public’s help Thursday in identifying whoever is responsible for the fatal shooting of a 37-year-old man in Compton last month.

The victim, identified by authorities as Jeffrey Jackson, was shot and killed in the 13000 block of Cookacre Street on April 7, the Los Angeles County County Sheriff’s Department stated in a news release.

The gunman was believed to be driving a blue, four-door, mid-2000s model sedan described as similar to a Honda Civic.

The vehicle was missing a rear, passenger-side hubcap and had a Dodgers flag protruding from the passenger side window.

Authorities released an image of the car in a bulletin requesting help from the public.

Investigators have not announced a possible motive for the shooting.

Anyone with information is 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.
