Two young men were shot and seriously wounded in a gang- related shooting inside the Nickerson Gardens Housing Project in Watts, a Los Angeles police sergeant said Wednesday

The shootings took place about 11:40 p.m. at 1517 E. 114th St., said LAPD Sgt. Angela McGee, watch commander at Southeast Division.

The victims were 18 and 25-years-old, McGee said. They were transported to a hospital in serious condition.

Police, she said, were looking for three male suspects who fled the scene after the shootings.

“The case will be investigated by our gang unit detectives,” McGee said.

The shooting, she added, may involved members of the Bounty Hunters, a Bloods set, whose territory includes the Nickerson Garden Housing Projects.

“We don’t know if it’s gang on gang shooting or something internal, McGee said.
