Detectives sought the public’s help Wednesday to find the perpetrator of a car-to-car shooting that seriously wounded a motorist on the northbound Harbor (110) Freeway in South Los Angeles.

The shooting occurred about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday between Manchester and Florence avenues, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Elroy Schneck, 41, was wounded in the attack, police said.

Detectives planned a news conference Wednesday afternoon to give an update on the investigation.

LAPD Sgt. Rudy Lopez told ABC7 the shooting was not a random attack, nor did it stem from road rage. “The victim was targeted and, based on the person involved, it was gang-related,” Lopez said.

A female passenger in Schneck’s car escaped injury, Lopez said.

The northbound 110 Freeway was closed between Century Boulevard and Florence Avenue, as was the Florence Avenue off-ramp, to accommodate investigators. The freeway reopened about two hours later, but the off-ramp remained off-limits a while longer.

Police were looking for an older model Nissan Sentry, possibly black, in connection with the attack. Anyone knowing more about the crime was urged to call authorities.
