LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police are investigating a shooting that killed a driver, injured his three passengers and caused a violent crash.

The shooting occurred around 2 a.m. Friday in the Panorama City area of the San Fernando Valley.

Police suspect it was a vehicle-to-vehicle shooting that occurred not far from where the bullet-riddled van smashed into multiple parked cars and came to rest.

The Fire Department says one of the three survivors was in critical condition when he was taken to a hospital.
