WEST COVINA (CNS) - Sheriff's homicide detectives and West Covina police searched today for the motorist who shot and killed another driver in West Covina.
An argument between two motorists apparently escalated into a fatal shooting and collision, police said.
Officers responding shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, at the 100 block of South Glendora Avenue, found a gunshot victim dead in the driver's seat of a vehicle that had crashed into a pole.
Homicide investigators with the West Covina Police Department said the victim was a Hispanic man in his 20s.
“It appears there was a conflict between the occupants of two different vehicles, which led to the shooting,” Lt. Travis Tibbetts said. “The suspect vehicle fled the area after the shooting and at this point is only described as a sedan.”
Detectives asked anyone with information on the slaying to call the West Covina Police tip line at 626-939-8688. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
