The victim of an apparent road-rage incident in Los Angeles' Silver Lake has died.

David Vasquez, 25, was taken off life support on Sunday, and his organs were donated for transplant.

Vasquez was giving two coworkers a ride home on Aug. 7 when a car drove up next to his pickup truck on Silver Lake Boulevard.

Police say that person said something to him, pulled out a gun and shot Vasquez in the head.

Vasquez worked as a delivery driver at Garage Pizza restaurant. His family arrived from Mexico this week and made the decision to take him off life support.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call the LAPD at (877) LAPD-24-7.
