Two men were fatally shot this afternoon in Koreatown.

The victims were found at Normandie Ave. and Third St. after police responded to reports of a shooting at 1:55 p.m., according to City News Service. They were rushed to a hospital but were pronounced dead there.

The two suspects are still at large and were seen running northbound on Normandie Ave. Authorities described one of the suspects as wearing a gray and white shirt, and the other donning a black sweater.

“There are no suspects in custody but we have quite a presence in and around the area,” Officer Sara Faden of the LAPD told the Los Angeles Times.
