PACOIMA (CNS) — A drive-by shooting early Tuesday morning, Jan. 16, took the life of a 36-year-old man in Pacoima.

A 1:50 a.m. radio call of a shooting with injury brought officers to the 12300 block of Pierce Street, just south of Foothill Boulevard, where they found the victim down next to a vehicle in a home’s driveway, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The man, suffering from gunshot wounds to his body, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was a resident of Sylmar, police said; his name was withheld pending family notifications.

“Preliminary investigation revealed the victim was next to his vehicle and in the process of leaving the location,” according to a police statement. “A vehicle drove by, and an unknown suspect shot the victim multiple times before fleeing the location.”

No suspect or vehicle description was available, police said.
