A 21-year-old Army veteran was shot to death Sunday only months after his return from Afghanistan, police said.
Francisco Garcia had left a party at his girlfriends house and was on a sidewalk in the San Fernando Valley around 2 a.m. Sunday when two cars pulled up. A man got out of one vehicle, smashed a beer bottle on the ground and yelled at Garcia before going back to the second car to grab a gun, police said.
Garcia died at the scene. No one else was injured.

Out of one shithole and into another and then right back into the original shithole. So sad.
The San Fernando Valley is mexican gang territory; not to much black until you get to the North East Valley, Pasadena area.
Probably just some young punk trying to make his bones or his initiation.
Some of the Valley gangs and South East gangs require a hit for initiation and membership.
Soldier was probably just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
That is very tragic about being in the wrong place at the wrong time...
No trial. Just shoot them.
