LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Two men were killed and another injured in a drive-by shooting into a vehicle in South LA.
The shooting took place in the 1100 block of West 68th Street just before 7:10 p.m., authorities said.

The second was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. A third man, suffering from a single gunshot wound, was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.
