2 men killed, 3 injured when gunfire erupts in Inglewood
Two men were fatally shot and three others wounded when gunfire erupted Saturday afternoon in Inglewood, according to local news reports.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department received notice of the shooting at 4:39 p.m. near Manchester Boulevard and 11th Avenue and dispatched fire engines and paramedics to transport the victims to hospitals, said Eddie Pickett, supervising fire dispatcher.
City officials said one man died at the scene and another died in surgery, KTLA-TV Channel 5 reported. One of the surviving victims remains in critical condition while the two others are reported to be stable with non-life-threatening injuries. All five victims were described as men over the age of 50.
Inglewood police are handling the investigation but have no details yet on the shooting, possible motives or a suspect, Sgt. F. Smith said.
Fox11 showed images of police and fire vehicles parked in front of a Jehovah’s Witnesses hall on Manchester and two officers approaching two unoccupied cars in a nearby parking lot, one of which appeared to have its windows shot out.
