LOS ANGELES, Calif.--A 50-year-old man was wounded in both arms today in a gang-related drive-by shooting in South Los Angeles, police said.

The victim was standing near the corner of Cimarron Street and Manchester Avenue around 2:10 a.m. when three females in a passing black Chevrolet Equinox yelled an expletive denigrating an area Crips gang clique before someone inside the SUV opened fire, said Lt. Manny Santoyo of the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Street Station.

The man, who is not a suspected gang member, was taken to California Hospital Medical Center in stable condition, he said, adding that the Equinox was last seen headed north on Cimarron Street.
