LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A 21-year-old man suffered fatal injuries in a shooting in Angelino Heights.

The attack in the 1000 block of North Kensington Road was reported about 1:40 a.m., according to Los Angeles police Lt. Wes Buhrmester.

Although the circumstances surrounding the shooting were not immediately clear, police did say that the victim — identified as Etsael “Tito” Cardenas — was found inside a vehicle.

Police do not believe the victim was a gang member. A motive for the murder was also unclear.

Witnesses heard two gunshots. One reportedly struck the victim in the heart.

Family members told Louisa Hodge, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, that Cardenas’ wallet and cell phone were also found on him ruling out robbery as a motive.

Cardenas was rushed to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

A tearful Daisy Cardenas — one of the man’s four sisters — said, “I just want to know who did this … and why?”

She also said her brother was not into gangs. “He was not the kind of person who would hang around with gangsters. That was not him.”

        So where were are you puS$y d!cklips? Still having your daddy’s balls up your ass do all the talking.

        Hey 1stman, we all know it’s you hijacking screen names to say something stupid since you started using one of my screen names “up//yours.” Your limp d!ck fell off when I called you out to show your puS$y ass at a Kelly Thomas rally,chickensh!t no-show dumbf**k.
So show your puS$y ass by where they had the Kelly Thomas rally. There is a sculpture that looks like a big check mark in front be there at 1:00p 02/22, if your $lut mama can sew your limp d!ck back on.


    I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. I’m a chickensh!t aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection. I’m such a puS$y dumbf**k with nothing to say I post to myself copying sentences from everyone, especially GROWAPAIR, who knows I’m a no-show ball sniffing loser.

    I’ll use your screen name next, puS$y d!cklips.

    Pay attention to me when I hijack screen names to show I’m a whiny puS$y dumbf**k loser. It makes my ass pucker with joy when people think I’m GROWAPAIR and my daddy’s balls like it when my ass puckers. Tell me how I can sound any more f**king stupid,
