Man on bike hit by car, fatally shot by occupants
The man was riding his bicycle Sunday evening when the car hit him near Hoover Street and Del Mar Avenue, said Officer Rosario Herrera of the Los Angeles Police Department.
[Updated at 3:15 p.m.: At least 60 homicides have been reported within 2 miles of Sunday's shooting since January 2007, according to coroner’s data collected for The Times’ interactive Homicide Report.]
She said some of those inside the car then got out and shot the bike rider in the upper body.
The cyclist was taken to a hospital, where he died of his injuries, about 9:30 p.m. Herrera said there was no description of the car or gunmen.
