Five people were hit by gunfire in an apparent gang-related shooting Saturday in South Los Angeles, police said.
The shootings occurred about 5:50 p.m. in the 200 block of East 119th Street, just south of the 105 Freeway, said Los Angeles police Lt. Ray Garvin.
"The shooting appeared to be gang-related,'' Garvin said.
"All five people, some of whom were critically wounded, were transported to a hospital for treatment," said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Garvin said investigators are "at the hospital and we are still trying to put together the details of what happened.''
