A 19-year-old woman was shot and killed early this morning when exiting the northbound 110 Freeway at the West Slauson Avenue Offramp. Only one witness has come forward so far for the 12:30 a.m. shooting. He said at least five shots were fired and a truck was seen fleeing the area. After noticing a car had sat still on the off-ramp for many light cycles, the witness investigated and found Samantha Padilla dead inside.

News crews on the scene found the windows blown out and the trunk area filled with bullet holes. No arrests have been made as of yet.
