ELYSIAN PARK (CBSLA.com) — Authorities said two men were shot in a confrontation with two other men in Elysian Park.

The victims were apparently on a bike ride with their wives, also riding bikes, when they were shot after getting into some kind of altercation with two suspects.

Police said the shooting happened just before 9 p.m. on Riverside Drive, near where the 5 and 110 Freeways connect.

KCAL9’s Tom Wait reported from the scene, the neighborhood of Elysian Valley.

He said one of the suspects was about 18, the other about 30. Police told Wait the suspects could be gang-affiliated.

The wives are both OK. The men — possibly a father and son — were both sent to a hospital. Authorities said one of the men was in serious, perhaps critical, condition.

Both men were shot in the legs.

Wait also reported they stole one of the bikes before fleeing.

    If they had concealed weapons permits and glocks, the bad guys would be in the hospital…

    How’s that gun control working for you California? You’ll never disarm the criminal element, your laws only work on the law-abiding citizens–the ones you *want* to be armed.
