LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say a man was shot to death as he lay trapped in his overturned vehicle after it was rammed by an SUV.

The 32-year-old victim was shot late Wednesday in the Reseda area.

Investigators found that the SUV rammed the victim’s vehicle from behind, causing it to crash into parked vehicles and overturn.

Someone got out of the SUV and shot the victim once, got back into the SUV and fled. A citizen pulled the victim out of the vehicle and called 911.

It’s not clear if there was more than one person in the SUV.

The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of next-of-kin.

A Police Department statement asks for the public’s help in identifying whoever was involved.
