The coroner’s office Tuesday identified a man who was shot as he was driving in the unincorporated Willowbrook area near Compton.

Daniel Johnson, a 35-year-old Compton resident, was shot about 11:55 p.m. Sunday near the 12400 block of South Mona Boulevard and died at the scene.

“It appears the victim was driving near the intersection of 124th Street and Mona Boulevard when he was shot,” according to a sheriff’s statement. “The victim continued to drive until he struck a light pole and another vehicle, at which time his vehicle came to rest.”

No suspect description has been released, nor have sheriff’s investigators established a motive for the shooting.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, 323-890-5500; or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
