A 17-year-old was killed early Sunday when he was deliberately run over by two different drivers before an underground party in south LA, police said.
The incident began when an argument broke out around 3 a.m. at the party, which was attended by an estimated 150 teenagers, in a parking lot in an industrial area at Avalon Boulevard and East 62nd Street, Los Angeles Police Department told KTLA.
The two drivers involved arrived at the party in a single car, police said. One of them got out and jumped into an unattended vehicle that was driving in front of the party.
The first car followed as they both drove a short distance before turning around and driving back to the party. There, the teenager was hit by one car after the other, said LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman.
“Someone probably intentionally hit a pedestrian … who was standing in the street,” Eisenman said. “Suspect two followed suspect one and also intentionally ran over the injured victim who was lying on the ground.”
The two drivers remain at large.
“They choose to run him over on purpose and then not one, but both vehicles run over him,” Eisenman said.
The victim’s identity was not released. But KTLA identified him as a rising senior at Santee High School.
