Gunfire in West Covina left a man and woman injured late Sunday, police said.

The shooting was reported just after 9 p.m. at California and Cameron avenues, West Covina police Lt. Michelle Figueroa said.

The victims were in a car that was pulling into an apartment complex along Cameron Avenue when shots were fired from another vehicle, the lieutenant said.

Paramedics took the wounded man and woman to a hospital, where they were being treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening, she said.

No information regarding a suspect description or motive was available Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies were investigating another shooting that left one man dead and two others wounded about two hours earlier and three miles to the southwest in the 400 block of Tonopah Avenue in La Puente.

It was not yet clear whether the shootings were related, but West Covina police and sheriff’s deputies were keeping in contact, Figueroa said.
