A man was killed and another wounded while sitting in an automobile.
The twin shootings occurred about 2:30 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of 69th Street and Budlong Avenue, Los Angeles police Sgt. Rick Rodgers said.
According to Rodgers, the suspect was trying to break into a house. At some point, he walked out front and confronted two men sitting in a car, and shot them.
The man who died at the scene was in his 50s, LAPD Officer David Orris said. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.
The other man, in his 70s, was transported to a hospital for treatment of his gunshot wound. His condition was unknown.
The suspect fled the scene but was later caught, Rodgers said. His name was not immediately available.
Anyone with information on these shootings was asked to call the LAPD’s 77th Street Division at 323-786-5077. Tipsters can also call crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
