Authorities Tuesday identified a man who was fatally shot in a vehicle that crashed into a railroad right-of-way in the Willowbrook area over the weekend.
Jayson McKinley, 32, was shot about 7 a.m. Saturday at East 118th Street and Willowbrook Avenue and died at a hospital, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies responding to a call of a traffic crash found McKinley inside a black vehicle with several gunshot wounds to his upper body, said Sgt. Edmo Luna of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
The vehicle had crashed through the fencing and over the right-of-way of the Metro A Line train, said Ramon Montenegro of the Sheriff’s Transit Services Bureau.
The tracks were closed for more than seven hours while detectives investigated the crash. No arrests were reported, and no suspect description was available.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
