From Times Staff and Wire Reports

June 18, 2006

A 14-year-old boy was shot and wounded Saturday outside a church where a funeral was being held for a slain gang member, police said.

Investigators believe the 1:30 p.m. shooting at Faithful Central Bible Church on Florence Avenue was a gang-related drive-by incident, said Inglewood Police Sgt. Marie Kirk.

However, she stressed that no witnesses had provided solid accounts yet.

“The scene was very chaotic, and people fled,” she said.

The victim was hit in the left arm and was being treated at Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center for wounds that were not life-threatening, police said.

The funeral was for a 29-year-old gang member who had been shot in Los Angeles.
