The Los Angeles Police Department pleaded for the public’s help Sunday in the investigation into the killing of a 19-year-old man gunned down in Wilmington hours earlier.

Daniel Felipe Delgado was driving eastbound along the Pacific Coast Highway near Drumm Avenue around 1:45 a.m. when multiple rounds were fired from another vehicle, according to LAPD.

Delgado was shot and later taken to a nearby hospital by first responders, police said. The 19-year-old died from his injuries in what police are calling a “drive-by shooting.”

Police said the shooter’s vehicle has been described as silver but its make and model are not known.

No other details have been released as the investigation continues.
