The victim of a shooting that took place Friday in Baldwin Park has been identified unofficially by friends as Steven Reyes, a resident of this city, whose brother was also killed in a similar way in June of this year.

UPDATE Sunday Nov. 4: Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed on Sunday the name of the victim is Steven Reyes.

Another friend also confirmed the same information. 

"We were not close but we did talk whenever we see each other, his brother died not long time ago", said a person who prefer not to reveal her name.

The shooting in the 3800 block of Maine Avenue was reported at 1:06 a.m. according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"It appears that the cars were driving down the street. One was shooting at the other as they were driving," said Lt. John Cortina to KTLA5.

His brother, Guillermo Reyes, a 20-year-old Baldwin Park man was also fatally shot last June 25 after being targeted in a car-to-car attack by rival gang members.

Its sad that young people are being murdered at such a young age and for no reason. Everyone says that police ain't doing their JOB but if people and witnesses came forward with the TRUTH something would be done in a quickness and justice would be done. But instead everyone stays quiet, and leave it as is. And that ain't right. And for everyone,young guys gang banging, STOP with their BS & violence and put yourselfs in the victims shoes? Would u like to go thru that n have ur family suffer in that way?? I don't think so.

Gangs will never die...they just multiply. I left in 2001. Lost many childhood friends due to gang violence. I was one of the lucky ones. Couldn't walk in the streets without ducking behind cars hoping that it wasn't my time. If you have small children get out before their minds get tainted. I did...my daughter is now graduating from H.S. and will be attending San Diego State University this coming fall. My 2 boys are right on track also. From someone who cares
