Boy Found Shot to Death in Car; Passenger Wounded

April 17, 1998

Inglewood police are investigating a shooting that left one 17-year-old boy dead and another critically wounded. The two were found in a car in the 600 block of South Flower Street about 9 p.m. Wednesday. Police found the teenagers slumped over in a car that had crashed into a parked vehicle, said Inglewood Sgt. Mike McBride. He said it was unclear whether the car was moving at the time of the shooting.

McBride said the driver was hit several times in the chest and died at the scene. The passenger, who was shot repeatedly in the torso, was taken to a hospital.

McBride said the names of the victims are being withheld because they are minors. He said it was unclear whether the shooting was gang-related.
