Los Angeles police searched Thursday for a man who drove up to a group of people walking on the sidewalk in South L.A. and fired shots at them, killing a man.

The group of friends was walking north in the 7000 block of Raymond Avenue at about 9 p.m. Wednesday when a gray vehicle stopped in front of them, said LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman.

A man got out of the car, ran up to the group and fired several shots, she said.

Some people managed to flee, but Daniel Smith, 20, was shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The shooter got back in the car and drove off.

Police have no information on the shooter and a search is ongoing, Eisenman says.
