South Los Angeles (KABC) — A woman in her 20s was found fatally hit in a car that crashed into a fireplace hydrant outside Fireplace Station in South Los Angeles, sparking an investigation that continued Tuesday.
In line with the Los Angeles Police Department, officers responded to the shooting trade on Slauson Avenue and St. Andrews Place just before midnight. They found the victim shot in the back passenger seat of a black SUV and he or she was declared useless at the scene.
Two different people were in the car when they were arrested, but their relationship to the victim is unclear. Family members and friends apparently showed up at the crime scene within a day and appeared very emotional.
Video taken at the scene also captured some sort of brawl.
Detectives mentioned that they have been interviewing witnesses to find out what happened.
“We haven’t yet discovered where the capture actually happened,” Capt. Adrian Gonzalez said. “What we do know is that the car went from the west to Slauson and stopped at St Andrews Place and Slauson.”
Investigators said they did not know how many cars were under attention, but before police arrived at the scene, a person in the car identified him as a relative.
No arrests were made.
