Detectives checked the registration and asked downtown merchants if any Bentleys had been reported stolen. The Bentley was not registered to the victim and police do not believe it belonged to him, Vernon said. Police found temporary registration papers on the car and verified the owner through the vehicle identification number, but Vernon would not release the owner's name.
The car appeared to have been bought recently, since it still had a temporary paper license tag on the back that read "Dream." The tag was from Dream Motor Cars on La Cienega Boulevard just outside Beverly Hills. An employee, who declined to give his name, confirmed that it had sold the Bentley recently. He would not identify the buyer. He said the dealership's owner, Amir Fatemi, was on vacation. A similar car is listed on the company's website for $99,900.
Police searched the car but found no weapons, drugs or other illegal items, and were still trying to determine the motive for the shooting.
"We have not seen a freeway shooting in quite some time," Vernon said. "And this case really stands out in the number of rounds fired at the victim's car and the kind of car the victim was driving."
No surveillance cameras were visible along the stretch of freeway where the car was found, but as detectives canvassed for evidence, Vernon said police would also look for traffic cameras that may have captured images of the Bentley before the shooting.
A motorist spotted the Bentley about 3:15 a.m. after the car struck the freeway median near the Aliso Street exit. The motorist stopped to help and eventually broke the driver's window only to find the shooting victim slumped over the steering wheel with several gunshot wounds, Vernon said.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles police and the California Highway Patrol were receiving reports of shots fired between Olvera and Alameda streets, then reports that an erratic driver had struck the freeway median.
The victim, a Latino man from East Los Angeles whose name had not been released, was taken to County-USC Medical Center at 3:30 a.m. in critical condition.
"His prognosis is not good," Vernon said.
An LAPD firearms expert was sent to examine the Bentley for bullets and other debris to determine what type of weapon was used, police said. Detectives searching the freeway shoulder found several bullet casings near the Mission Road exit, Vernon said. There are at least 10 bullet holes visible, and possibly many more shell casings.
The investigation created a nightmare commute, closing the southbound 101 Freeway during the morning rush hour. Traffic was backed up for miles, and the gridlock spread to nearby freeways and surface streets.
