Gunman Kills Man, Injures 2 Others At South LA Park

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say a 25-year-old man was killed and two other people were wounded when a gunman on a bicycle opened fire on a crowded South Los Angeles park.

Police said a bystander flagged down patrol officers after shots rang out at about 4:30 p.m. at Algin Sutton Park and dozens were sent scrambling for cover. The park is located at 8800 Hoover Street.

Los Angeles police Officer Karen Rayner said a man in his early 20s was shot in the head and died.

A 17-year-old girl was in serious condition and a 19-year-old man was in fair condition with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Authorities said the suspect took off on foot before being chased down and arrested by police.

Police say the shooting was believed to be gang related.

The suspect was being questioned about the shooting but hasn’t been booked yet.

    if you say ‘gunman’ it makes it sound like it’s any ol’ guy who has a gun….when it should properly read as ‘gamgmember’ uses gun to etc etc…

    if you say ‘gangmember’, less people are likely to read the story even and it also helps put a bad name on guns rather than just gangs.

    if you say ‘gangmember’, less people are likely to read the story cause it’s not news, and saying ‘gunman’ helps put a bad name on guns rather than just gangs.

      Wait a second, then that would mean that the Caucasian gangs in Orange County pass out boxes of chocolate instead of vandalize and commit murder. Yeah, that must be right. See? I can be just as close-minded as you🙂

        they aren’t white gangs in Orange County, they are Meth Addicts..PENI is a white prison gang in Orange Co..

        Whites gotta have something to protect themselves from the Brown Boys!!
