 Kemroy Alexander, 18, succumbed to his injuries around 5 pm on Saturday at the San Fernando General Hospital. A 17-year-old suspect, of La Brea, remains warded in a serious condition.

According to a police report, at around 3 pm the teens got into a Nissan Almera  plying the “round-d-town” route in San Fernando. Upon reaching Cipero Street, the teens pointed the fake gun at the 50-year-old driver and ordered him out of  the vehicle.
