Police investigate fatal shootings in South Los Angeles and Watts

Abby Sewell (LA Times) | October 16, 2011

A 16-year-old boy died and a 19-year-old was wounded early Sunday morning in South Los Angeles in what police said appeared to be a gang-related shooting.

The 16-year-old was riding his minibike in the 6700 block of South 11th Avenue at about 1:35 a.m. when three men got out of an SUV and opened fire on him, said Sgt. Angela McGee with the LAPD’s 77th Street station. He died at the scene. The suspects are still on the loose.

The 19-year-old, who was not believed to be an intended target of the shooters, was shot in the leg. He was transported to a local hospital and is in stable condition, McGee said. Neither of the teens was identified.
