In the early hours of February 13, 55-year-old Latino Jubal Guevara-Trinidad died after being hit by a car in the 100 block of East 43rd Street.

The coroner's records showed that Guevara-Trinidad was struck multiple times by a vehicle and then was dragged along ground.

LAPD authorities arrived at the incident after responding to a traffic collision radio call and pronounced Guevara-Trinidad dead at the scene.

According to the Los Angeles Times, investigators learned the victim was in a fight prior to being hit by the car. The fight moved into an alleyway, where he was struck.

Officials at the time found the vehicle and identified a person of interest, but were withholding more details about the suspect, citing the ongoing investigation.

Authorities did not believe the killing was gang-related.

Note: Due to technical difficulties, the LA Weekly's archive of all homicides within Los Angeles city limits was discontinued near the end of last year. We will be rolling out the 2011 homicides, one by one, until our "Murder was the Case" archive is up to date. Thanks for your patience.
