A young man was shot dead early Saturday in Walnut Park after a wordless exchange of glances at a red light, L.A. County sheriffs deputies said.
The victim, Diego Rey Garcia, 20, of Los Angeles, was driving in a car with one passenger when the vehicle pulled up to a red light at Firestone Blvd. and Alameda St. about 1:40AM, said Lt. Chris Nee.
A black Honda with four to five young Latino men inside pulled up next to them, and one exchanged looks with the driver.
“Nothing was said, but apparently the suspect took exception… got out of the car and fired several rounds at the victim,” Nee said.
