Lincoln Heights shooting leaves one man dead in a car with Uber sticker [updated]


LINCOLN HEIGHTS — Four suspected gang members were apprehended early this morning after the fatal shooting of a man who was found inside a car with an Uber sticker on the windshield, reports CBS2.

The shooting took place after 2 a.m. near North Broadway and Griffin Avenue when a Toyota sedan with the Uber sticker was fired upon eight times from another vehicle. The driver of the Toyota, described as a 35-year-old male Latino, was pronounced dead at the scene. It’s not certain, however, if the victim was an Uber driver.

A silver KIA SUV that was seen fleeing the scene was pursued by CHP to Hacienda Heights, where the four occupants, two men and two women, were apprehended. The motive of the crime is not known.

Update: New information from police says the victim was not an Uber driver but his name has not been released, according to KTLA.
