Man killed, child and other man hurt in shooting near South L.A. liquor store

Triple shooting in South L.A. leaves one man dead, 4-year-old injured

A 60-year-old man was killed, and a child and young man were injured late Sunday in what authorities say was a gang-related shooting.

The man was shot multiple times in the legs while he and a 19-year-old man were talking in front of a liquor store in the 1700 block of Firestone Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Two men walked up to them about 8:30 p.m. and starting shooting, said sheriff’s Lt. Joseph William.

The 19-year-old, who was struck once in the upper body, is expected to survive. Authorities say he's a member of a local street gang.

The pair were taken to a hospital, where the 60-year-old died of his injuries.

Deputies say a family of three got caught in the gunfire.

A 32-year-old father was driving east on Firestone with his 4-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter when their car’s rear window was struck by a bullet.

The boy was hit by glass that shattered when the stray bullet struck the car. He suffered a minor cut and was taken to a hospital.

Investigators were trying to identify the gunmen, who fled on foot, William said.
