Los Angeles police continued to search Thursday for a gunman who opened fire in Panorama City, leaving one dead and three wounded.
Jonathan Santillano, 37, of Sylmar, died at the scene of Wednesday’s shooting, authorities said. One person was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition, another was taken to a hospital in unknown condition and a fourth was treated at the scene, authorities said.
The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Parthenia Street and Tobias Avenue. The four victims had been involved in a three-car crash and had stopped to exchange information when the gunman approached and began shooting at them and then fled, according to Los Angeles police.
Police initially described the suspect as a man in his 20s, wearing a white shirt and dark shorts, and was reportedly seen leaving the area in a BMW with tinted windows. But a later update said there was no suspect description.
LAPD Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton said the shooting was unrelated to the upcoming Valley Indoor Swap Meet.
