Estephan Hernandez, a 21-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Thursday, Sept. 28, in the 1100 block of East 148th Street in West Compton, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

A person in the sedan fired while the car was in motion, Mendoza said. The vehicle was last seen driving west on 148th Street, away from Hernandez’s car.
