Once on scene, police located a man, sitting in the driver’s seat in a new Rolls-Royce, suffering from at least one gunshot wound to his upper torso.
Paramedics transported him to Cedar Sinai Hospital, where he is expected to survive.
Authorities explained no bullet holes were visible in the vehicle, which led officers to believe the suspect shot him from above the scene.
