Things took a turn for the worse yesterday afternoon in Hollywood when multiple incidents occurred all in the same block in separate incidents. A few minutes before 3 p.m., a 20-year-old man was shot while driving his car by a pedestrian who fled on foot. David Juarez, a Hollywood resident who was driving southbound on St. Andrews Place towards Santa Monica Boulevard, crashed into oncoming traffic before his vehicle came to a rest across the busy boulevard, according to police.

Two LAPD officers responding to the incident were struck by a vehicle as they headed to the scene. They, along with Juarez, were transported to the hospital. The officers sustained non-life threatening injuries -- pain and cuts -- but Juarez died.
