LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man killed in a suspected road-rage shooting in the Arleta area of Los Angeles has been identified.

A coroner's official says 22-year-old Richard Eduardo Ruiz of North Hollywood died at a hospital about two hours after the 3 p.m. Saturday shooting.

Lt. Paul Vernon tells City News Service the shooting occurred as the victim's red Kia and the suspect's gray, late model Dodge Challenger passed under Interstate 5 on Branford Avenue.

Vernon says a surveillance camera photographed the Dodge just moments before the fatal shot.

Two passengers in Ruiz's car were unharmed and were able to give police a description of the shooter.
