A man was shot and killed Thursday afternoon in South Los Angeles by a gunman who fled in a silver SUV, according to Los Angeles police.
Police believe the shooting was gang-related.
The suspect, described as a man in his 20s or 30s, shot the victim multiple times before fleeing. The shooting took place about 1:45 p.m. in the 6800 block of 11th Avenue.
The victim was pronounced dead at a hospital. The Los Angeles County coroner's office said it had no immediate information about the identity of the victim.
The fatal attack was one in a string of shootings Thursday afternoon in South Los Angeles. About the same time, a 17-year-old boy was shot and killed outside a fast-food restaurant in the area of 108th Street and Western Avenue after a white vehicle pulled up next to the victim, then fled.
Later in the day, two men were shot near a Vermont Avenue pawn shop. They were taken to a hospital for treatment, but no further information was immediately available about their conditions late Thursday.
At this time, police do not know whether any of the three shootings were related,
