Two Dead, One Wounded In Drive-By Shooting Near South L.A.

by Contributing Editor

Two men are dead and another was wounded in a drive-by shooting near the border of South Los Angeles and the unincorporated Florence area and authorities sought two suspects Thursday morning.

Deputies responded to the 1100 block of East 68th Street, near Central Avenue, about 7:05 p.m. Wednesday and located one man dead at the scene and two others who had suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to a hospital, where the second victim died, according to Deputy Erin Liu of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The third victim was treated at a hospital and released, Liu said.

A preliminary investigation determined the victims were standing near a parked car when the suspect vehicle drove up and a passenger opened fire, striking two of the victims. The suspect shot the third man a short distance away as the car, described only as a dark colored sedan, sped away westbound on East 68th Street, Liu said.

A description of the shooter or driver was not immediately available.

The motive for the shooting was not disclosed.
