Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Detectives are asking for the public's help in solving the murder of a Korean man who was shot to death Saturday while driving his car on Wilshire Boulevard.

The victim was taken by his companion to Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital. He was subsequently transported by ambulance to USC Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.

It is not known whether the shooting is gang related.
