1 man killed, 1 hospitalized in Sherman Oaks shooting

One man was killed and another injured when a gunman opened fire in Sherman Oaks early Wednesday, authorities said.

A man in his 20s was found dead in an alleyway in the 5100 block of North Sepulveda Boulevard shortly after 1 a.m., said Officer Irma Mota, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

A second man was shot multiple times and made his way into a nearby apartment complex, Mota said. He was hospitalized Wednesday morning in critical condition.

The relationship between the two shooting victims was unclear, and there was no information available about the shooter or a motive, Mota said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Police told CBS-LA that a gun was found lying next to the body of the man in the alley.
