The man who was shot while driving a Bentley on the 101 Freeway last Friday morning in downtown has been identified after he died yesterday at the hospital. The victim is identified as Jose Luis Macias. “We have not seen a freeway shooting in quite some time,” said Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of the Central Detective Division, in a statement. “And this case really stands out in the number of rounds fired at the victim’s car and the kind of car the victim was driving.” Detectives are still looking for leads on finding any more information regarding the case. “This is a real whodunit,” said Vernon.
