BOYLE HEIGHTS – The teenage passengers of a sedan that crashed into a Boyle Heights home on Sunday “were in the wrong place at the wrong time” when they came under a deadly assault by armed gang members, reports the L.A. Times. The shooting and subsequent crash left the driver, a 19-year-old male from El Monte, dead. Also killed was a female passenger who was three-months pregnant with the driver’s child, police said. A male passenger in the back seat was also injured. None of the victims had gang connections.
“They didn’t know the area and they were in the wrong place at the wrong time,” LAPD Det. David Alvarez told the Times.
