A 24-year-old man who was wounded in a weekend drive-by shooting in Pasadena died Tuesday at a hospital, authorities said.

Ray Anthony Magee Jr, of Duarte and another man, whose name was withheld, were shot about 4:10 p.m. Saturday while sitting in a car in the 1500 block of Lake Avenue, near East Howard Street, according to Pasadena police.

The preliminary investigation indicated that Magee and the other man were stopped in the car when a late-model sedan pulled up behind them and someone inside fired multiple shots into their vehicle, according to Pasadena police Lt. Carolyn Gordon.

There were at least two suspects in the sedan, she said.

“Detectives do not believe the shooting was random,” Gordon said, and are investigating whether it was gang-related.

Paramedics took both victims to a hospital in critical condition, she said. Magee died shortly after noon on Tuesday, and the other victim was expected to recover, according to police.

No arrests in the case have been made. Anyone with information about the shooting was encouraged to call the Pasadena Police Department at 626-744-4241. Those wishing to report anonymously can call 800-222-TIPS.
