A restaurant worker who was shot Sunday morning on Silver Lake Boulevard while dropping off co workers is not expected to survive his injuries in what police believe might have been a road-rage related shooting. Homicide detectives from the Northeast Division are handling the shooting of Juan David Vasquez Loma, 25, who remains on life support after being shot at about 5 a.m. while driving a pick up truck on Silver Lake Boulevard near Scott Place. Two other passengers in the truck were not injured. “It appears to be road rage-related, ” said homicide Dect. Larry Burcher. Previous reports said the gunshot that critically injured Loma came from a dark-colored sedan that headed south on Silver Lake Boulevard following the shooting.
Loma, a Mexican immigrant from Mexico City, worked as a waiter and bus boy at El Chavo restaurant and also worked a late- night shift at nearby Garage Pizza, said co workers.
Anyone with information on the shooting can call Northeast homicide detectives at (213) 847-4261.
*Update: El Chavo restaurant has set up a victim’s fund for Loma.
