(Sept. 9, 2018. 12:15 p.m.) -- A 29-year old LB man has been booked on suspicion of murder after LBPD says he was driving in the area of Market St./Orange Ave., got into an argument with a man walking in the area, and while the victim was standing in a roadway median allegedly ran over him, causing fatal injuries. LBPD says the driver fled and, while officers in the area of Willow/Temple attempted to conduct a traffic stop as the driver appeared to be intoxicated, crashed into a parked car at 10th St./Obispo Ave.

In a release, LBPD states:

On September 8, 2018, at approx. 11:00 p.m., officers were dispatched to Market Street and Orange Avenue regarding a hit and run injury collision, which resulted in the death of a male adult.

When officers arrived, they learned the victim was walking in the area of Market Street and Orange Avenue, when he got into an argument with the male driver of a red sedan. The argument continued and while the victim was standing in the center median area of the roadway, the suspect ran him over and fled westbound on Market Street. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Victor Salvador Herrera of Long Beach.

Shortly thereafter, in the area of Temple Avenue and Willow Street, officers observed what appeared to be an intoxicated driver, and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. When the vehicle collided into a parked car at 10th Street and Obispo Avenue, the suspect was taken into custody. Upon further investigation, it was determined this to be the same vehicle involved in the earlier hit and run.

The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Sokhorn Hor of Long Beach. He has been booked for murder and is being held at the Long Beach City Jail on $2,000,000 bail.

Anyone who witnessed or has information regarding the incident is asked to call Long Beach Police Homicide Detectives Malcolm Evans and Robert Gonzales at (562) 570-7244.
