A 17-year-old boy was killed and a 23-year-old man critically wounded Saturday in a possibly gang-related shooting behind a Target store in the Baldwin Hills area of Los Angeles.
The shooting was reported at 3:32 p.m. at the Target store at LaCienega and Obama boulevards, according to Officer A. Delatorre of the Los Angeles Police Department's Operations Center.
The two victims were sitting inside a car when a male drove up in another vehicle and fired multiple rounds at them and fled, Delatorre said.
Paramedics took both victims to a hospital, where the teen died, he said.
