Girl Killed, Another Child and 2 Adults Wounded in Compton Shooting

A girl died in the second fatal shooting reported within a mile-long stretch of Long Beach Boulevard on Sunday.

The deadly gunfire was reported about 5:30 p.m. in the 200 block of Long Beach Boulevard, according to Deputy Tracy Koerner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Information Bureau.

"Upon arrival, deputies discovered four individuals had been shot," Koerner said in a written statement.

"A female juvenile was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead," the deputy said. "Two adults and a second juvenile were also transported to a local hospital and were listed in stable condition."

The ages of the girl who was killed and the surviving child were not available.

Sheriff's officials provided no further details and did not confirm initial reports that the shooting took place at or near a community carnival, and that a fire house was struck by bullets.

Another deadly shooting was reported shortly after midnight Sunday in the 1500 block of North Long Beach Boulevard, about a mile away. A man was killed in that attack, but further details were not released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's homicide detectives at 323-890-5500. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
