Lt. Bale with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office told Los Cerritos Community News that the victim has been identified as Ernie Joseph Salgado, age 41. Salgado died from gunshot wounds at an area hospital.
After the shooting, the two were apparently inside a van and managed to drive away from the scene and stopped and flagged down a passing Sheriff’s patrol unit who was in the area at the time.
The location of the shooting took place less than six blocks from the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station near Bloomfield Avenue and Foster Road.
