Three separate shooting incidents since Thursday have left four dead. The most recent took place yesterday around 1:30 p.m. when a man in a car drove up to a church and shot a man in a wheelchair and the man pushing him. The vehicle used was later found abandoned.

On Saturday and Thursday, two men were shot and killed on the streets. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies cannot confirm that these were gang related or that they are connected. However, they are asking for the public's assistance with information related to the shootings. Contact Sheriff's Homicide Detectives at (323) 890-5500.
