5 People Shot In Two Possibly Related Shootings
A woman was killed and four others injured in two shootings in Watts on Sunday night.
LAPD believe the shootings that occurred within an hour of each other and just a few blocks away from each other are related.
The first shooting happened at 8:30 p.m. on the 11500 block of Mona Boulevard, according to the L.A. Times. Witnesses said they saw the suspect get out of his gold station wagon and shoot a man and two women. The man was shot in the face, one woman was shot in the hand, and another was hit in her stomach by bullet fragments.
KTLA reported that they were all taken to the hospital, and they're expected to live.
Another incident occurred around 9:20 p.m. on the 2200 block of East 114th Street, where the gunman fatally shot a woman in the back of her head and injured another man by shooting him in his back.
The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she died, and the man is expected to survive.
Police believe the gunman in both incidents is the same person because of how close the shootings were and also because witness descriptions of the gunman in both shootings were similar. Witnesses described the suspect as a man in his 20s, who got out of a gold car that was either described as a station wagon or sedan.
LAPD Sgt. Scott Stevens told Fox News that he doesn't believe the shootings were gang-related. It is not clear at this moment what the motives of the shooting were though.
