A man was killed Friday night during what some media are reporting as a video shoot under the Sixth Street Bridge. At approximately 10pm on Friday, officers responded to a report of a shooting at the location.
According to a spokesperson from the LAPD, the 25-year-old male victim was at the event when the suspect, a 18-20 year-old male, pulled up and a verbal argument ensued. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and fired at the victim before fleeing via vehicle – described on the Citizen app as a blue Dodge Charger.
The victim was later declared deceased at a nearby hospital.
Authorities say this incident was gang related. No additional information on the victim or suspect was available. This is the first homicide reported in Boyle Heights this year.
Occurred in Boyle Heights but they probably not from Boyle Heights. Our Bridge gets photographers and visitors from all over city!
