Man fatally shot in ambush attack in Redondo Beach

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Redondo Beach police are looking for a man they want to question in the shooting death of a man who was ambushed outside an apartment building.

Capt. Jeff Hink says 38-year-old Bobby Darren Reynolds of Gardena was killed Friday night outside the building while visiting family.

Hink said Reynolds was shot multiple times at close range and appeared to be specifically targeted

Witnesses reported seeing two men fleeing in a Chrysler 300 sedan which was found abandoned blocks away from the shooting scene.

Investigators identified the car's owner, 27-year-old Erick Julian Ortega, as a person of interest in the case and want to talk to him. They said Ortega has a criminal record with prior arrests for robbery and drug offenses.
