Los Angeles detectives are looking for a man caught on surveillance this week killing his ex-girlfriend in front of his 3-year-old daughter.
Video posted by LAPD shows Karen Ruiz, 35, exiting a vehicle shortly after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday when another car pulls up behind her in a driveway.
Ruiz immediately runs home and calls for help. Herbert Nixon Flores, 46, appears to be chasing them, firing several shots with a semi-automatic pistol at Ruiz, who is out of scope, police said.

Flores returns to her car and escapes. You can hear a child cry.
Ruiz died instantly. She had left her daughter in a babysitter’s house and was pulling something out of her car when Flores arrived.
“The relationship was violent,” LAPD detective Sharon Kim told KTLA, the Los Angeles television station affiliated with the CW Network. “She has had several complaints against him over the years and more recently an injunction has been issued against him for certain acts of violence he committed against her.”
Flores is considered armed and dangerous. He is described as 6 feet 1 inches tall with black hair and brown eyes. He weighs around 220 pounds.
