A 17-year-old boy was killed and two other teenagers were wounded in a shootingTuesday at a strip mall in South Los Angeles.
The triple shooting occurred about 3:50 p.m. near 60th Street and Vermont Avenue, said Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez. The gunman got out of a car and opened fire at somebody standing with a group of teenagers at a bus stop, said LAPD Deputy Chief Phillip Tingirides.
About 10 shots were fired, Lopez said.
All of the victims are under 18.
The gunman was only described as a black male wearing a dark hoodie and jeans, Lopez said.
Lopez said it was too early to know whether the shooting was gang-related.
The victims were two boys and a girl.
