Three men were wounded Tuesday when a group of gunmen opened fire on a street in a Hyde Park neighborhood.
The shooting began around 7 p.m. in the 64oo block of Brynhurst Avenue, according to LAPD Officer Sarah Faden.
Police said two small sedans carrying eight men drove into the neighborhood.
The men got out of their vehicles and began walking down the street shooting as they went, police said.
The men then got back into their cars and drove off.
Andrew Brooks, whose brother and father were among the wounded, told KTLA he heard the gunfire and ran outside.
“I thought they were firecrackers at first, but then I came outside and saw my brother laying on the floor,” Brooks said.
The three victims were hospitalized, at least one was in critical condition.
Police said some of the victim’s family members had gang ties.
