Del Rey Car to Car Shooting Ends in a Hit & Run Crash

Police are searching for suspects wanted in connection to a recent car to car shooting in Del Rey.

At 1:14 a.m. video footage captured a Blue 2014 – 2016 Hyundai Elantra with exterior neon lights driving into the Del Rey neighborhood. About a minute after, the exchange of gunfire can be heard on video. The detectives later learned that an errant round went through a living room window of a nearby occupied apartment.

Further investigation revealed that either before or after the shooting, the Hyundai Elantra crashed into a pick-up truck that was parked in front of the recreation center. After the car crash, video footage captured the Hyundai Elantra fleeing the scene and continuing northbound on Slauson Avenue towards Culver Boulevard as it was being followed by the Infiniti G35.

As both cars continued towards Culver Boulevard, video footage captured a small White SUV or crossover style vehicle and Black 4-Door Sedan, chasing after both cars. During the ensuing car chase, video footage captured the sound of a second car to car shooting that was believed to have occurred near the intersection of Culver Boulevard and Slauson Avenue Boulevard.

It is unknown which cars were involved in the 2nd shooting or if the occupant(s) of any of vehicles were struck by gunfire. Detectives did confirm that the apartment occupants were not struck by gunfire. The hit and run car crash left the truck owner, a long time Del Rey resident and sole provider of a family of five, without means to support his family.

Suspect Vehicle 1 is described as a Blue 2014 – 2016 Hyundai Elantra with exterior neon lights and extensive damage to its front fender.

Suspect Vehicle 2 is described as a Silver Infiniti G35 Sedan or similar with possible collision damage to the front fender.

Suspect Vehicle 3 is described as a small White SUV or crossover style vehicle.

Suspect Vehicle 4 is described as a Black 4-Door Sedan.
