Teen Convicted In 2021 Hit-And-Run Shot Dead On Street

  • A 17-year-old Los Angeles boy who drove into a mother walking her baby in a stroller in 2021 — then was controversially handed a light sentence — was fatally shot in California Wednesday.
  • Kristopher Baca, who had not been publicly identified until his death because of his age, was gunned down in a driveway in Palmdale, a city 10 miles south of Lancaster, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed with The Post.
  • A department spokesperson also confirmed that Baca was the then-15-year-old previously convicted in the hit-and-run that sent a Venice mother and her baby flying off the hood of his car.
  • Neither Rachel nor her baby were seriously injured. The teen, who had drugs in his system and marijuana in the car, attempted to flee but was rammed by a witness in a pickup truck.
