October 27, 2003|From a Times Staff Writer

Two men were shot to death Sunday in separate shootings in Pacoima that occurred within minutes of each other, authorities said.

The first shooting happened in the 9800 block of San Fernando Road about 1:30 a.m. when two men were hit by bullets fired from another car, said Officer Lucy Diaz of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Both were taken to hospitals, where one of the men died and the other was treated for a non-life-threatening bullet wound, Diaz said.

Minutes later, a man was fatally shot in the 10000 block of El Dorado Avenue, police said. The victim, Jaime Rocha, 26, was talking to friends at his home when a vehicle with four males drove up. The driver exchanged words with Rocha, then shot him several times. Rocha died at the scene.

No arrests had been made in either shooting, police said. Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD detectives at (818) 834-3115.
