Los Angeles police searched Thursday for the person who fatally shot a man on a sidewalk in South Los Angeles.

The shooting took place at East 93rd Street and Avalon Boulevard about 2:20 a.m., said LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman.

Police believe the shooter opened fire from a gray Yukon sport utility vehicle that had been seen in the area, Eisenman said. Shortly after the shooting, a vehicle matching that description crashed nearby. When police searched it, no one was inside and it appeared to have been abandoned, Eisenman said.

Police were searching for the suspect near West 104th Street and South Broadway.
