The male suspect then approached the victim, who was still seated in his car, and a confrontation ensued.

“The female suspect exited the suspect’s car with a bag. The male suspect retrieved a semi-automatic handgun from the bag and proceeded to fire multiple rounds at the victim. The victim, in an attempt to flee, put his car in reverse, crashed into a wall then fled the location,” the LAPD said.
