LAPD seeking suspects in bus shooting that left boy, woman wounded

Los Angeles police late Wednesday were looking for a suspect or suspects in connection with a shooting that left a woman and boy wounded while they rode a Dash bus in South Los Angeles.

Police said it was not clear whether the victims were grazed by the bullet or cut by shattered glass after the bullet smashed a window on the bus at Avalon Boulevard near 42nd Street.

The boy was believed to be about 10 years old and the woman was in her 30s, said Officer Sara Faden of the Los Angeles Police Department. They were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Television news footage showed firefighters treating what appeared to be a neck wound on the boy.

The attack was reported about 6:40 p.m. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (877) 527-2247.
