A man was killed and two women were wounded in a shooting in the Florence-Firestone area of South Los Angeles early Saturday morning, officials said.
Deputies responding to a “gunshot victim” call around 12:45 a.m. found the three injured on the ground in the 1400 block of East 77th Street, according to a statement from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. Authorities described all three victims as Latino.
The man was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. The women were also treated at a local hospital and were later released, officials said.
All three were shot while riding bikes, according to Lt. Derrick Alfred with the sheriff’s department.
“A vehicle had driven by while the three people, who were all on bicycles, were riding down the street,” he said, “and then (the person in the vehicle) opened fire on them.”
No information has been released about suspects or a possible motive, and authorities have not said whether the shooting was gang-related.
No further details were immediately available.
