Police released a composite sketch Wednesday of a man wanted in connection with a shooting on the 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles.

The victim in Tuesday's shooting was northbound on the 110 Freeway near Manchester Boulevard when another driver opened fire. The driver of a black, four-door sedan pulled alongside the victim's vehicle and opened fire, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Elroy Schneck, 41, was shot in the head before he crashed into a fence at the end of the Florence Avenue exit ramp. He was hospitalized in critical condition.

The sketch released Wednesday is a composite of witness descriptions obtained by police after the 12:30 p.m. shooting.  Witnesses told police there were possibly two people in the gunman's vehicle.

Investigators are attempting to determine whether Schneck was targeted or the shooting was random. Authorities said they have not ruled out the possibility that a road rage confrontation led to the shooting.

The shooting investigation led to a closure of the northbound 110 Freeway during the early afternoon. Investigators walked on the freeway in search of evidence.

Call 213-485-4164 with information about the case.
