Ervin Darnel Galbreath, a 28-year-old black man, was shot and killed Saturday, Feb. 3, near South Western Avenue and West 29th Street in Jefferson Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
Shortly before 4 a.m., Galbreath and another person left the Hollywood area in a Dodge Charger when they noticed a vehicle following them, said Los Angeles Police Det. Dave Garrido.
The vehicle continued to follow Galbreath, and as he was driving south on South Western Avenue, the vehicle pulled up and fired at the Dodge, Garrido said.
