Baldwin Park shooting kills man, injures another near store that 50 Cent visited earlier
A shooting in the parking lot of a Baldwin Park liquor store killed one man and injured another Saturday evening.
Officers from the Baldwin Park Police Department responded to a report of shots fired in front of JNJ Liquor and Market at 3216 Baldwin Park Blvd. shortly after 6:15 p.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
They found a man had been shot in the upper torso. He died at the scene.
Detectives later learned that a second man had been shot twice in the abdomen. He was taken to a hospital and was undergoing surgery.
Authorities are investigating the incident as possibly being gang-related, the Sheriff’s Department said.
The shooting took place about an hour and a half after rapper 50 Cent made a promotional appearance at the liquor store, but the Sheriff’s Department said there was no indication that the shooting was related to the appearance.
There was no word on a suspect, and investigators reported no arrest.
