Makes for a change.
Parking spot-related homicides tend to be more of a black thing.
A man shot near Westgate Wednesday night in Glendale has died. The shooting apparently stemmed from a dispute over a parking spot.
The shooting happened around 7 p.m. near the Westgate entertainment district on Sunset Boulevard.
The victim was rushed to the hospital, but later died. He has since been identified as 31-year-old Avondale resident Tyler Wilson.
Police say the preliminary investigation shows that Wilson was a passenger in a vehicle when he was involved in a verbal altercation with the driver of another vehicle, a silver 4-door sedan. The dispute was reportedly over Wilson’s vehicle attempting to back into a parking space.
Police say suspect vehicle pulled ahead of Wilson’s vehicle and Wilson exited his vehicle, where the argument escalated. The driver of the silver sedan fired multiple shots at Wilson at then fled, eventually traveling south on 91st Avenue.
The vehicle is described as a newer model silver 4-door sedan with no distinguishing markings that were noticed. The driver, who is considered armed and dangerous, is described as a Hispanic male, 25 to 35 years old, with “spiky” dark hair, who was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt or jacket.
