    A man and his son were hospitalized  Tuesday night after road rage suspects tracked them to their home and shot them, Venice police said

    The suspects told the victims they were gang members.

    The shooting happened around 8:15 p.m. in the 800 block of Indiana Avenue, near Lincoln Boulevard, said Lt. Marco Munoz of the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Station.

    Several suspects who cut off a man on a motorcycle exchanged words with the rider, telling him they were gang members and that they knew where the man lived because he stopped at his residence, Munoz said.

    The man went into his home, but about an hour later, five suspects returned to the residence and a confrontation ensued, during which the man, who is in his 50s, and his son, who is in his 20s, were shot, Munoz said, adding that both were hospitalized with non-life-threatening wounds.

    The suspects, who had yelled out the name of their gang, fled on foot and remain at large, Munoz said.

    Detailed descriptions of the suspects were not available, nor was a description of the vehicle involved in the original traffic dispute.
