East LA Shootings Leave 4 Dead*
Reports are coming in that two separate shootings that occurred both within 20 minutes and a mile and a half of each other in unincorporated East LA have left two dead at each scene. Los Angeles Sheriff's cannot confirm that they are related yet, but all victims are Latino men.
The first shooting was reported at 1:20 p.m. on the 5100 block of East Olympic Blvd., followed by another report 17-minutes later on the 1200 block of South Herbert Avenue.
Following the first shooting where both men were shot in the head, police took at least one person into custody.
