A 21-year-old man was killed early Monday while standing outside his vehicle during a street takeover in the Vermont Knolls area of South Los Angeles.

The shooting occurred about 12:40 a.m. at Century Boulevard and Hoover Street, according to a police services representative at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Center.

The victim was standing outside his vehicle when a 20-year-old man driving in the takeover stopped, got out of his vehicle and shot the victim, she said.

The suspect then got back into his vehicle and fled the scene, she said.

Paramedics rushed the wounded man to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, she said.
