The location of the killing. One man was killed and another injured when they were run over by a car in an apparent gang-related attack in Koreatown, police said Wednesday.

The victims were struck by a gang rival in the 2800 block of West Pico Boulevard about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, said LAPD spokesman Bruce Borihanh. When police arrived, they found the victims in the street. The driver of the gray car had fled, Borihanh said.

Police later tracked down the 24-year-old man on the roof of a nearby home, where he was taken into custody.

Both victims were taken to a hospital. One, a man in his early 30s, was pronounced dead, and the condition of the second man, in his early 20s, was unknown, Borihanh said.
