A 23-year-old Azusa man was shot and killed while sitting inside a parked car in Pasadena. A 19-year-old woman from Duarte suffered minor injuries.
The incident happened on Saturday, at approximately 8:56 p.m., in the 2500 block of East Foothill Boulevard.
The male victim was struck numerous times by gunfire while the female victim sustained only minor injuries. Pasadena Fire Department Paramedics arrived on scene and transported both victims to a local hospital. The male victim arrived at the hospital in critical condition and later succumbed to his injuries the following morning. The female was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and was released.
Preliminary investigation by the Pasadena Police Department revealed both victims were seated inside of a parked vehicle when the suspect approached the vehicle and began shooting in the direction of the victims. The suspect ran from the location following the shooting.
