Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department are searching for people who may have witnessed three fatal shootings that occurred in South Los Angeles over the weekend.
Although crime and homicides are down citywide, a spate of violence left three people dead from Friday to Monday, when there were 14 shootings and 11 people hit by gunfire, said Capt. Robert Arcos of the 77thStreet Division, which encompasses 12 square miles in South L.A.
The first fatal shooting occurred Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in the 6400 block of South Bonsallo Avenue, said LAPD Det. Chris Barling of the 77thStreet Division.
Lionel Douglas, 36, was riding his bike when a person driving a light-colored SUV pulled up and shot him, Barling said.
