WESTLAKE — Detectives are investigating two drive-by shootings that left a man and a woman wounded, an LAPD spokesman said Monday.
The shootings occurred within an hour Sunday, Los Angeles Police Officer Jason Lee said. A 34-year-old man was critically wounded at 5:30 p.m. at 3rd Street and Kenmore Avenue when a shot from a passing car struck him in the chest, Lee said.
Two assailants were in a 1980 to 1982 Chevy Nova. The victim, whose name was not released, was in critical condition Monday at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.
An hour later, a second drive-by shooting wounded Cecilia Salazar, 46. A lone gunman drove up to the 400 block North of Coronado Street and opened fire Lee said.
