Officers got the emergency call reporting a shooting at about 6:35 p.m. The incident occurred in the 11400 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard, on July 6, as the news outlet points out.

Authorities have revealed that two men were standing outside when a white Chevy Malibu with paper plates suddenly came closer. As the car drove by someone from inside the vehicle started shooting the two men.
