Driver Shot, Killed While Driving East on Olympic Blvd.
Police found a man dead in his car in Boyle Heights this morning, having been killed by several gunshot wounds to the torso. Officials believe that the death was not gang-related.
NBC Los Angeles reports that the shooting also appeared to have happened from one car to another, at about 1:00 a.m. today. The victim was discovered sitting in the driver's seat of a Chevrolet Cavalier at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Dacotah Street, and the shooter's car, which is described as a dark SUV that may have been a Ford Explorer, was allegedly traveling in the same direction -- east -- on Olympic Blvd.
The victim reportedly lived just a block away from where he was killed, with his girlfriend and her child.
