More details have come out today regarding the alleged Sunday morning Freeway shooting in Sherman Oaks near Van Nuys Blvd on the 101. A car with a young man, now identified as 20-year-old Marlon Gordillo-Sical, was found shot in his car after it crashed on the freeway. He was taken UCLA Medical where he was pronounced dead.

Police were cautious in assuming details yesterday as KNBC reported (emphasis added): The Honda sedan could have been driving on the 101, could have entered the eastbound freeway at Van Nuys or Sepulveda boulevards, or could have transitioned onto the 101 from the 405 just before the shooting, police said." And with good reason as police say "witnesses reported seeing Gordillo-Sical shot before he entered the freeway, as he was driving on surface streets."

Police also say there is no apparent connection to a Saturday freeway shooting in Long Beach on the 710.
