Two drivers were wounded Thursday in downtown Los Angeles and another man was taken into custody, according to Los Angeles police.

One driver was involved in a hit-and-run in downtown, LAPD Officer Rosario Cervantes said.

A second driver followed the hit-and-run car and a confrontation ensued, Cervantes said.

Meanwhile, a third man shot and wounded both male drivers around 8:45 a.m. at 28th and Main streets, Cervantes continued.

The wounded men were transported to a hospital and the shooter was taken into custody, Cervantes said.

A motive for the shootings was unclear at this point. The suspect’s name was not immediately available.
