A 23-year-old man died Saturday evening in El Monte after being shot during a vehicle-to-vehicle shooting that stemmed from an alleged road rage incident, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

In a release, the LASD said that around 7 p.m. Saturday, the victim, who was a passenger in a truck, was in an altercation with the shooting suspect in another vehicle, which City News Service describes as a dark-colored SUV, and as occupied by at least two men. The argument escalated and the passenger was shot in the upper torso.

As KTLA notes, the victim, who has only been identified as a 23-year-old Hispanic man, was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead.

Anyone with information is asked to call LASD's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
