another car, Azusa Police Lt. Jeff Reed said. Winfield, who was
struck by a bullet, drove a quarter-mile west on Gladstone to escape
the gunfire before crashing into a telephone pole at Aspan Avenue,
Winfield was taken to Foothill Presbyterian Hospital in nearby
Glendora, where he later died. Investigators from the Los Angeles
County coroner's office will determine whether Winfield died from the
gunshot or the car crash, Reed said.
There are very few leads in the case, which police are
investigating as a homicide, Reed said.
"Anything is possible," he said. "We don't have any indication of
anything. It could be anything, from road rage to whatever else it
could be. But we don't think it was road rage."
Winfield was apparently driving to meet his brother, who was
waiting in a nearby neighborhood, police said. Winfield's family
could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the
Azusa Police Department at (626) 812-3200.
