One Dead, One Wounded In East LA Shooting
By City News Service
(CNS) – A shooting in East Los Angeles Monday left a 22-year-old man dead and a 46-year-old man wounded.
The shooting in the 300 block of South Ditman Avenue, near East Third Street, was reported around 4:50 a.m., said Deputy Lillian Peck of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau. Because of the nature of the call, deputies ordered everyone inside the residence to step out.
As the occupants came out, deputies saw the 46-year-old suffering from a gunshot to his upper body. They then found the younger victim inside a trailer on the south side of the property. He was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead.
The 46-year-old man was listed as stable. He was initially detained but is no longer being held. The relationship between the two shooting victims was not known, nor was a motive for the shooting.
There was also no suspect information. The investigation is continuing, said Deputy Mark Pope.Print This Post
