After an exchange of words, the occupant of the vehicle shot the victim one time in the upper body. Ramiro Guardado staggered a short distance, collapsed at a residential driveway in the 12600 block of Bradley Avenue, and died due to the fatal gunshot wound.

The suspect wanted for the murder has been identified as 23-year-old Manuel Virgen. He is described as a male Hispanic, 5 feet 9 inches, 165 pounds, black close-cropped hair with brown eyes. Virgen is a resident of Sylmar and has several familial connections in the same city. He also has ties to the State of Washington and Michoacan, Mexico.
