One person was killed and three others were wounded in a shooting in the southwest Los Angeles area, and sheriff’s officials said the attack appeared to be gang-related.
The shooting occurred at about 12:30 p.m. near 88th Street and Vermont Avenue. Sheriff’s officials said the four victims were in or near a car on 88th Street when another vehicle pulled alongside.
“One of the occupants of the vehicle stepped out of the vehicle and fired at the victims,” sheriff’s Lt. Holly Francisco said. “One victim, a male black, 26 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene. There were three other victims. Our gang detectives are working with homicide bureau, and there is a possibility it is gang-related.”
A separate shooting with similar circumstances occurred about an hour later seven blocks away in the 2000 block of West 83rd Street. Authorities said they were still investigating whether the shootings were related.
Police said the second shooting involved a suspect in a possibly white Lexus, and the shooting victim was conscious and talking with paramedics before being taken to a hospital.
