Inglewood Shooting

Three people were reportedly shot in Inglewood on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013.

The shooting happened just before 1 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 11700 block of Crenshaw Boulevard, according to Inglewood Police Department Lt. Jackie Layne.

Two men and a woman were shot and were in critical condition, Layne said.

In contrast to police reports at the scene of the shooting, a man who identified himself as a relative told KTLA the victims were an older woman, and a younger man and younger woman who were dating. He said the two women had been killed.

Shawn Williams said one of those killed was his mother-in-law, and he speculated that there was a conflict with an ex-boyfriend.

Perhaps the older woman got “caught up in the middle of it, trying to stop what was going on,” Williams said.

A Los Angeles County Fire Department official initially said a child was among those wounded.

KTLA’s Dave Mecham contributed to this report.
