A rash of shootings occurred Saturday night in South Los Angeles, leaving one man dead, Los Angeles Police Officer Gregory Baek said.

An 18-year-old man was in stable condition after being shot Saturday about 10:30 p.m. near Wilmington Avenue and East 97th Street. He was shot in the left shoulder and right leg and was taken to a hospital.

About 15 minutes later, a 20-year-old man was shot and injured. The man was in his vehicle in the 10400 block of South Broadway when a silver sedan with four people inside drove by and a shot fired from the car struck him in the forehead. He was taken to a hospital, where he was in stable condition.

About 11:40 p.m. Saturday, two people shot a man in his 20s in the 200 block of East 69th Street. The man was struck in the torso and was hospitalized in critical condition.

A 24-year-old man was shot about 1:40 Sunday morning at a party in the 2000 block of East 103rd Street. He died at a hospital. Detectives believe the shooting was gang-related.

About the same time, another man was shot behind the ear while leaving a party near Hoover Street and West 123rd Street. The man, whose age was unknown, drove himself to a hospital, where he was in stable condition.
