A 23-year-old man who was wounded in a Pacoima drive-by shooting died at a hospital three days later, and the killer remains at large, police reported Monday.
Rony Jovel was shot about 5:30 a.m. Sept 13 in the 12500 block of De Garmo Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
Investigators say Jovel was waiting for a ride with a friend when two unidentified suspects approached in a white sedan and asked the pair if they were in a gang,
“Jovel and his friend, who have no gang ties, replied `o.’ One of the suspects shot at Jovel with a handgun, striking him,” then drove off, police said.
Authorities urged anyone with information about the shooting to call the LAPD Valley Bureau Homicide detectives at 818-374-9550. Those wishing to report anonymously can call 800-222-TIPS.
