He was later identified as Kirinda Lavar Morehead, of Duarte, according to Investigator Rudy Molano of the coroner’s office.

Morehead had just parked behind his wife’s vehicle and they started walking toward their home on Mount Olive Drive, Moody said.

A white vehicle pulled alongside him and someone inside fired multiple shots at him. Morehead was hit several times, and was pronounced dead at the scene, Moody said.

The white vehicle was last seen driving west on Bashor, then north on Mount Olive Drive.
