One person was killed and two others were critically injured in a possible car-to-car shooting that led to a violent crash in Panorama City on Friday.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials responded to the crash about 2 a.m. in the 14700 block of W. Plummer Street.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene and three others were injured after what police believe was a car-to-car shooting that led to a van striking several parked cars before coming to a stop.

Los Angeles police confirmed a driver in the van riddled with bullets was shot in the head and died during the collision. A person in the passenger seat was shot multiple times and was in critical condition.

Two other male passengers in the backseat of the van suffered injuries, including broken bones. One of them was later determined to be in critical condition as well. All three victims were men in their 20s, police said.

Authorities were investigating possible gang ties with MS-13 and said the surviving occupants of the van were not cooperating with investigators.

Police were looking for witnesses to find the gunman or gunmen and to gather details on where the shooting took place.

Plummer Street, a busy road in the Valley, was shut down for several hours and later reopened.
