The incident was reported about 5:50 p.m. in the 200 block of East 119th Street in the Broadway-Manchester neighborhood of South L.A., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire department originally reported that five people were “critically ill or injured” in the incident.

LAPD Sgt. Tim Jones told KTLA that five people were working on a car in the area when two cars pulled up and opened fire on the victims. All five people were shot and taken to a hospital, but their conditions are unknown, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Several evidence markers, dozens of shell casings and pieces of torn clothing used as makeshift bandages dotted the pavement where the shooting occurred, video from the scene showed.

Jones said the shooting appeared to be gang-related.

Patrick Washington was in his home when he heard the gunfire. He ran out to find the victims laying in the street and bleeding.

“I saw the guys out here, they’d been out here all day. They weren’t bothering anybody, just fixing on the car,” Washington told KTLA.

Police did not have any information about the shooter or shooters and no arrests have been made.
