The victim died at the scene, LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman said.

Investigators determined the shooter pulled up in a car and fired multiple rounds.

Lashonda Monks, who lives near the scene, said she heard about six shots.

“I told my daughter, who was going into our garage, ‘Let’s get out the way,’ ” Monks said.

The man killed was the only person struck. He had not been identified as of Thursday evening.

The gunman was driving a light-colored, four-door sedan, possibly a Cadillac, with tinted windows. It was last seen heading west on Highway 1 from Vermont, Eisenman said.

Detectives are looking into whether the deadly incident could be gang-related.

PCH was blocked for several hours due to the investigation but later reopened.

No further details were available.
