NORTH HILLS ( — A 25-year-old man was killed and three other people were injured Tuesday morning when a gunman opened fire on their car in the San Fernando Valley.

The shooting happened near the intersection of Parthenia Street and Balboa Boulevard around 12:15 a.m., Los Angeles police said.

The group was riding in a Lexus sedan when it pulled over for an unknown reason, police said.

A gunman then approached the vehicle and opened fire, according to authorities.

Gunfire also hit two other cars and the nearby window of a home.

The victims, two men and two women, were transported to a local hospital, where the 25-year-old was pronounced dead. The surviving victims were shot in the spleen, leg and shoulder. Their conditions were unknown.
