Pacoima, CA -

(FOX 11) A man was shot to death today as he drove a pickup truck in the Pacoima area, authorities said.

Officers sent to Glenoaks Boulevard and Vaughn Street on a shooting call about 5:20 a.m. found the man slumped over the steering wheel of the vehicle, and he was pronounced dead at the scene, said Los Angeles police Officer Luis Garcia of the Media Relations office.

The vehicle may have been stopped at the time of the shooting, Garcia said. The rear window of the truck was shattered, and the man was wounded in the back, Garcia said.

The man apparently was in his 40s, said coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter. His name was withheld, pending notification of his relatives. No arrests were reported.

From Sandra Endo:

Police responded to a deadly shooting in Pacoima early Thursday morning.

A man was found slumped over the wheel of his white dodge pick up truck which was still running when police arrived.

It happened around 5:20am at the intersection of Glenoaks and Vaughn.

Detectives say the Hispanic man in his 40's, was shot at least once in the back, although area residents say they heard multiple shots fired.

LAPD detective Hector Guzman says "we are looking for the suspect or suspects and are asking anyone with information to come forward. It appears the driver was alone in his vehicle at the time of the shooting and we don't have information on the suspect(s) or any motive at this time."

Distraught family members and friends crowded the crime scene but were too distraught to talk to the media.
