Shooting At Watts Polling Location May Have Stemmed From Love Triangle

LOS ANGELES ( — A poll worker Tuesday was shot several times following a dispute at a mayoral polling location in Watts.

The shooting — which may have stemmed from a love triangle involving the shooter, the victim and a woman — occurred just before 9:40 a.m. at 92nd Street Elementary School in the 9200 block of Grape Street, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Officials say a 35-year-old man, who was working at the polling location, got into an argument with the alleged shooter. The fight then spilled outside, where the gunman shot the victim three times.

The man was transported to a local hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

The school was placed on lockdown as a result.
