LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two people were killed and two others wounded when someone fired shots at a backyard barbecue in unincorporated South Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Mary Leef says the victims were in the backyard of a home when a dark-colored vehicle pulled up in front. One of the occupants opened fire with a rifle.

One man died at the scene. City News Service reports paramedics rushed a 16-year-old boy to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Two other men were also treated at a hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.

Authorities have made no arrests. Leef says a motive for the shooting has yet to be established.

    South Central LA holds its own, unique September 11 tribute. Scheduled are loud rap music, 1 speeding car drive-by parade, and a firearm salute.

      This comment is uncalled for! An innocent 21 year old full of life died at the hands of cowards!

    It’s a ‘culture’ thing, nigra and mex. We let them in, and we have to let them do their thang.

      I’m for free speech, yet I don’t know why “the windrunner” is allowed
      to post
      CBS should…
      Block his IP address

        Windrunner is a dolt, but Sam isn’t for free speech if he thinks we should prohibit speech from dolts. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. I avoid his posts, you should give it a try.

    Corrupt DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.

    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.

    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.
