Man killed, woman wounded in Carson gang-related drive-by shooting

Larry Altman (Daily Breeze) | June 5, 2013

A drive-by gunman opened fire on a group standing on a Carson street, killing a man and wounding a woman in an apparently gang-related attack, sheriff’s deputies said Wednesday.

The shooting just before 10 p.m. Tuesday night occurred at 169th Street and Billings Drive, adjacent to the Ambler Avenue Elementary School campus.

“We believe the victim was an associate of a gang,” sheriff’s homicide Detective Steve Blagg said.

Detectives said gunshots rang out as numerous people were hanging out on the sidewalk. A sport utility vehicle rolled by, and someone inside opened fire.

The SUV raced away in an unknown direction.

A man and a woman hit by gunfire were taken to local hospitals. The man, whose name was not immediately released, died. The woman’s wound was not considered life-threatening.

No suspects were in custody today.

Although the investigation was completed by the time classes began at Ambler this morning, administrators asked Los Angeles Unified School District police officers and sheriff’s deputies to conduct additional patrols around the campus, said Ellen Morgan, a district spokeswoman.
