Detectives released a composite sketch Wednesday of a man they are seeking in connection with a Pasadena drive-by shooting that left a Duarte man dead and a second man critically wounded.
Ray Magee Jr., 24, died at a hospital three days after the May 23 attack in the 1500 block of North Lake Avenue, according to Pasadena police and Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner officials.
He and a 23-year-old man were sitting in a car when a silver or gray 2017 Dodge Charger pulled up next to them, police said. One of at least two people inside the Dodge opened fire, striking both victims.
The killers were last seen speeding south on Lake Avenue, according to police.
Investigators released a surveillance camera image of the car used in the deadly shooting in July. It had tinted windows and the last two numbers of the license plate were “50,” police said in a written statement.
Detectives have since been able to generate a sketch of one of the suspects.
He was described as a Black man, between 25 and 30 years old, with a light complexion, officials said. He weighed 170 to 180 pounds and stood 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall.
A definitive motive has not been released, but police said early in the investigation they were looking into the possibility the shooting stemmed from a recently-revived feud between a Pasadena gang and a Duarte gang.
