One man was killed and three people were wounded in separate gang-related shootings in Westlake over the weekend, police said.

Brent Lavorne Moore, 18, was shot and killed at 9:40 p.m. Saturday near West 2nd and Witmer streets, coroner’s officials and police said.

Sgt. Michael Mabie of the Los Angeles Police Department said Moore was a Crips gang member of an unknown clique and was killed after two men walked up and shot him multiple times before fleeing.

Three people were injured in a separate gang-related shooting this morning near a Westlake club, Mabie said.

He said three men were standing in front of the Pan American restaurant and club about 1:45 a.m. when a car with two gang members, reportedly of the Temple Street Gang, drove by and one of the men inside said something to the group.

The car then circled back around and one of the men inside shot at the three men, striking one in the chest, one in the back and one in the hand, police said. Mabie said that the three injured men were also gang members and that security guards returned fire and the vehicle sped away.

In a separate incident about half an hour later in Pico Rivera, a man was shot and killed, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The man was shot in the 6700 block of Bollenbacher Drive about 2:10 a.m., the Sheriff’s Department said. Coroner’s officials said the man was taken to a hospital, where died after 3 a.m. He has not been identified.

In another incident, a Los Angeles Police Department officer shot a man in the 200 block of South Fresno Street in Boyle Heights about 11:30 a.m. this morning, police said.

The man pointed a gun at the officer, who then fired and struck the man, said Gregory Baek of the LAPD.

The man has not been identified and was taken to a hospital, where he was in stable condition, Baek said.
