LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police have identified a bicyclist who was shot to death as he lay on the ground after being struck by an SUV.
Officer Karen Rayner says 19-year-old Shaoyan Almazan was declared dead at the scene in Koreatown Saturday afternoon.
Another man who was shot in the hand as he ran away was treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries. His name was not released.
Rayner says the two men were riding their bikes when the white SUV ran into Almazan, knocking him to the ground. The gunman then got out of the vehicle and shot Almazan several times. The second bicyclist ran away and called for help.
Rayner said Sunday the suspected shooter was a male of medium height and weight wearing a hooded sweatshirt.
Investigators do not know a motive for the attack.
