ALTADENA – Over a dozen gunshots rung out in the normally quiet Altadena neighborhood on Tuesday night. An unrelated 27-year-old man and a 4-year-old boy were struck by the bullets, killing the child and injuring the man.

At around 10:30 p.m. as a small group of family and friends were out in the front of the home on the 300 block of Figueroa Drive the suspect vehicle drove by firing over a dozen shots toward the home. The man was visiting the home and the child lived in the home that was shot at.

The suspect was only described as a black man driving a black or dark-colored vehicle authorities said.

The man is receiving care at a local hospital and is expected to survive. It is unclear if the home was the intended target. There is no known motive at this time.

Anyone who has any information that they feel is pertinent to the case should call the LASD Homicide Bureau at (323)880-5500.
