Two 18-year-old men who were innocently parking their car were in stable condition Monday after being shot in a gang attack on a dark Arlington Heights street shortly before midnight.

Neither of the victims is affiliated with a gang, according to police.

The shooting happened at 11:10 p.m. Sunday at 58th and Figueroa streets, according to Sgt. Thomas Bojorquez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s 77th Street Station.

The two 18-year-old men were looking for a parking spot “when they were approached by a group of males who threatened them and opened fire,” Bojorquez said.

One man was wounded in the abdomen and the other was wounded in the arm, he said. Both were taken to hospitals for treatment and had stable vital signs.

The motive was not known but the shooting was believed gang-related because the suspects shouted their affiliation before they started firing, Bojorquez said. The victims were not gang members.
