Early this morning, Exposition Park saw two murders when two men, reported to be in their 20s, were shot dead on an apartment building sidewalk on South Figueroa near West 43rd St. Police have not determined a motive for the 1:50 a.m. shooting, but are looking into the possibility of it being gang or drug related.

The LA Times reports that the two men "had just been dropped off by a friend" before being shot.

With over a 100,000 people heading to the area tomorrow for the special Dodgers game (see photos of what the Coliseum looks like here), it can't be good for the investigation.
