A man killed in a shooting in the Mid City area of Los Angeles was publicly identified Saturday.

He was Christopher Scorza, 25, the coroner’s office said. Scorza’s city of residence was not available.

The shooting was reported in the 1700 block of South Rimpau Boulevard, between Washington and Venice boulevards, at 11:40 p.m. Friday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

A preliminary investigation determined Scorza and another person were in the area when someone in a vehicle drove up and opened fire, striking both victims, police said.

It was unclear if the shooter fired from the vehicle or was outside the vehicle at the time of the shooting.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where Scorza died. The second victim was hospitalized with stable vital signs, police said.

A description of the shooter and motive were not disclosed.
