BOYLE HEIGHTS — A motorist lost control of his vehicle and crashed on Thursday night after being fired upon several times, police said.
The car was driving down the 1800 block of Pomeroy Avenue at about 9 p.m. when a suspect fired multiple shots toward the vehicle, causing it to crash into the sidewalk, said Lt. Marla Ciuffetelli with the LAPD’s Hollenbeck Division. The three males in the vehicle did not sustain any injuries in the shooting or the crash.
The suspect, a Latino male with long black hair, fled on foot. He was seen wearing a black Dodgers jersey.
It is unknown at this time whether the shooting was gang related, said Ciuffetelli. The suspect remains at large.
