Police are looking for two drivers accused of intentionally running over a teenager at a party in South Los Angeles early Sunday morning, killing the teen.
More than 150 people were attending the party in a parking lot at E 62nd Street and Avalon Boulevard when a heated argument occurred, witnesses told Shannon Watts of RMG News.
Moments later, the driver of a white sedan ran over a 17-year-old boy and then crashed into a light pole, witnesses said.
A second vehicle, a black Maserati SUV then ran over the teen, exited the parking lot, reversed over the victim again, and then drove away.
The victim’s mother identified him as Matthew Lobos, an incoming senior at Santee High School.
The suspects remained at large late Sunday morning.
