The shooting stemmed from an attempted traffic stop and short pursuit at 4:13 p.m. in the 9800 block of Bowman Avenue, said Deputy Sara Rodriguez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which is assisting police in the investigation.

Officers attempted to stop a gold Lexus for a traffic violation when the car failed to stop and the driver led officers on a two-minute pursuit. The driver stopped the car and was detained while the car’s passenger walked away, Rodriguez said.
