(CNS) – A young man was killed in a car-to-car shooting in Boyle Heights on June 29.
The shooting in the 1300 block of Dacotah Street, at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard, was reported just before 1 a.m., said Sgt. Kristin Hagerty of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Station.

Both the victim’s Chevrolet Cavalier and the suspect vehicle – described as a black Ford Explorer – were traveling east on Olympic when the shooting occurred, police said.

“At this time, there is no evidence pointing to it being gang-related,” Hagerty said of the shooting.
