Police are searching for two young men who confronted and shot two bicyclists in Elysian Park late Friday.
Authorities believe the two shooters were gang members, both 16 years old — although one may be older.
The pair confronted the two cyclists, a 27-year-old man and his 47-year-old father-in-law, then shot them, said Los Angeles police Sgt. David Armas. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
“The victims had no gang affiliation,” Armas said. “They live locally and were just out for a bike ride.”
The shooting occurred about 8:55 p.m. near Riverside Drive and the 5 Freeway, on the bike path that runs along the Los Angeles River.
The shooters fled westbound, police said. One was riding a red bicycle.
