CARSON (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say the suspect in a Thanksgiving Day shooting at a Carson home has been booked Friday into a hospital jail ward, while two of his victims were in stable condition following surgery.
A domestic dispute was reported Thursday about 6 a.m. in the 19300 block of Corsin Avenue in Carson. Deputies searched the neighborhood after being told the suspect had fled.
“That’s when deputies heard shots coming from the home,” sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Stover said.
A 65-year-old man was found with gunshot wounds to his torso, and a 17-year-old girl had also been struck by gunfire.
Raheem Ford, 19, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on $1 million bail in the jail ward at County-USC Medical Center’s jail ward. He is scheduled to appear in Compton Municipal Court on Monday.
A sergeant at the sheriff’s Carson station said he did not know why Ford was hospitalized.
Deputies say the suspect, who was involved in a relationship with the girl, returned to the home and fired at both victims before taken into custody.
Deputies did not divulge the relationship between the two victims.
The man was in surgery through much of the afternoon with what Stover described as “considerably serious” injuries.
