One man was killed Friday night after he was shot by suspects who opened fire from a passing vehicle in the 600 block of north Fickett Street in Boyle Heights. The victim, a male Latino, died from his injuries after being transported to a hospital, according to LAPD Officer Sally Madera.
Hollebeck Division Capt. Martin Baeza described the homicide, the first this year in Boyle Heights, as gang related in a Twitter update Friday night. But police today had no further details about the motive or victim. The suspects remain at large.
