A 14-year-old girl sitting alone on a suburban porch was killed in a drive-by shooting, one of seven young people who were among the 14 people to die violently during the final weekend of 1990, authorities said today.
The girl was hit once in the upper torso about 10 p.m. Sunday by shots fired by a gunman in a car passing the home at 1212 S. Atlantic Blvd. in Alhambra, Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Linnemeyer said.
The teen-ager, whose name was not released, died at County-USC Medical Center. It was not immediately clear whether the shooting was gang-related.
In South Los Angeles, an 8-year-old boy was killed when a shotgun accidentally went off and hit him in the face.
The weekend death toll included five other youths.
