LOS ANGELES, Calif.--There were two non-fatal shootings in the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Station area overnight, including one between gang sets, authorities said.
Around 12:30 a.m., at a dance hall at Western Avenue and 89th Street, one victim was grazed in the head and thigh, and shot in the stomach, said Sgt. A. McGee, watch commander at the LAPD's 77th Street Station.
The victim was transported to the hospital but was expected to survive, McGee said, adding this appears to be a gang-related shooting between Crips--the Rollin 60s and the Rollin 90s.
The second shooting occurred Around 1:16a.m., on the sidewalk at 5255 1/2 S. Figueroa St., near Slauson Avenue, McGee said. A 38-year-old man was shot in the leg. He was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, McGee said.
