A carjacking victim who was dragged under his vehicle has been identified

A man who was killed when he was dragged under his SUV for more than two miles after he was carjacked in South Los Angeles last week has been identified, authorities said.

Larry Walker, 63, of La Habra, died of multiple blunt force trauma injuries in Thursday’s incident, according to the Los Angeles County medical examiner. His death was ruled a homicide.

The incident began around Reneau was wanted as a suspect in two shootings, including a fatal one, in July in the West Valley.

Reneau got into the back seat of a Toyota Prius and officers were unable to stop the car as the driver sped away. The Prius crashed near Florence and Haas roads in Inglewood after a short chase, police said. The Prius driver, later identified as Jamal Sutherland, 34, was arrested on a felony charge.

Police allege Reneau then ran from the crashed Prius and stole Walker’s SUV, police said. Walker became entangled in a seat belt when Reneau forced him out of the SUV and was dragged under the vehicle during the chase.

Reneau hit several police cars before flipping the stolen SUV at Florence and Prairie streets and coming to a stop, police said. Walker was pronounced dead near the scene of the crash.

Law enforcement officers were involved in a two-hour standoff with Reneau before he exited the vehicle. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for the injuries he sustained in the accident. He will face additional charges in connection with Walker’s death, police said.
