SAN FERNANDO VALLEY — Two men have been killed and one was wounded in two separate shootings in the northeastern corner of the San Fernando Valley, officials said Thursday.
In the first attack, at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, one of two men in a tan pickup truck opened fire as they drove past a group of men sitting in front of a house in San Fernando, said Lt. Dan Peavy, a homicide detective with the San Fernando Police Department.
Michael Beltran, 37, of Mission Hills was killed in that attack and a 45-year-old San Fernando resident was wounded. The injured man was treated at a local hospital and released.
Neither man was a gang member, Peavy said.
In another attack, a 23-year-old Tujunga man was shot to death at 10 p.m. Wednesday in the 10600 block of Leolang Avenue in Sunland after a brief struggle with two rival gang members, Los Angeles police said.
