A father was killed and his daughter was injured in a drive-by shooting in Highland Park earlier this week.

The incident was reported about 3:40 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Avenue 50 and Milo Terrace, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Responding officers found the two victims shot in the area. The 25-year-old woman was taken to a hospital in stable condition while the man was declared dead at the scene. He was identified as 68-year-old Miguel Carachure.

An extended member of the family told KTLA Carachure was taking his daughter to work when the shooting occurred.

An investigation revealed the victims were driving in the area when another vehicle drove past them and shot multiple rounds into their vehicle, striking both.

The driver left the scene in an unknown direction, and police do not have a description of the shooter or the suspect vehicle.

A GoFundMe page set up for the family describes Carachure as a father of three and a loving husband.

No further details about the incident have been released.
