Los Angeles: Detectives
from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division are
seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect
responsible for the Hit and Run traffic collision that killed
24-year-old Destin Moore.

On September 27, 2020, around 11:00 p.m., Olympic Area patrol
officers responded to a man down in the north/south alley west of
Vermont Avenue, north of Council Street. Los Angeles Fire
department paramedics responded and transported the victim to a
local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The case was given to detectives from the Los Angeles Police
Department’s West Bureau Homicide due to the injuries sustained by
the victim. The case was transferred to West Traffic Division after
the medical examiner from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office

by a vehicle.

involved in a collision, you should pull over and stop as soon as
it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the
scene to identify yourself.
