The shooter, or shooters, approached the three men at 9:40 p.m. in a parking lot in the 200 block of Western Avenue before firing multiple rounds, Holyfield said. Investigators haven’t made any arrests, but are looking for “multiple” people.

Police don’t have a motive for the shooting, Holyfield said.

There have been no homicides in Harbor City in the last year, according to The Times’ Homicide Report.
