A 25-year-old man was killed today in a drive-by shooting in Northridge, police said.

About 12:10 p.m., multiple rounds of bullets were fired from a silver Honda Accord near Lassen Street and White Oak Avenue, LAPD Officer Karen Rayner said. Several bullets hit a victim in another car, which was holding several men, Rayner said. The victim died at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

The suspects were described as Latino males between 20 and 25 years old, Rayner said. She added that police are investigating whether the incident was gang-related.
