9-Year-Old Girl And Two Men Wounded In Shooting
A 9-year-old girl and two men were wounded in Compton Monday evening in separate shootings that were suspected to be connected.
The shootings both happened around 8 p.m., Lt. Marc Lucio of the sheriff's Compton Station told City News Service. The girl was shot in the leg at Hillford Avenue and Reeve Street, and the men were wounded outside a fish market near Alondra Boulevard and Central Avenue, just a few blocks away.
The girl was hospitalized and with non-life-threatening injuries. Both men were hospitalized as well, though their condition wasn't reported, the Los Angeles Times says.
Deputies still don't have a suspect or motive. They're investigating how the two shootings might be connected and whether they were gang-related.
