Brothers Shot During Dispute In Mt. Washington

By City News Service

A gang member armed with a shotgun fatally shot one man and wounded the victim’s brother Saturday in the Mount Washington area of northeast Los Angeles, a police officer said Sunday.

Pedro Morales died at an area hospital. His brother, whose name was not released, was listed in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, said Los Angeles police officer Norma Eisenman of the Media Relations Section.

Police reports did not include any age for the Morales brothers. A representative from the Coroner’s Office said Sunday Morales’ body was still at an area hospital.

The shooting was in the 5300 block of Monte Vista Street about 6:15 p.m. Saturday, Eisenman said.

The brothers were involved in some type of dispute with the suspect, who hit the men with two shotgun blasts.

Police would not release any suspect description for the assailant.
