One man died and another was wounded Sunday in what investigators think was a gang-related shooting at a Hollywood gas station. Three men in their 20s sat in a car at the Mobil station at Santa Monica Boulevard and Vine Street when an alleged gang member walked up and shot several times into the vehicle, hitting two of the occupants, police said. After the gunman fled on foot, the man in the car who was not wounded drove the other two to a hospital for treatment, police said. One of the two men later died of his wounds, police said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca redeployed deputies to Compton on Tuesday in response to a bloody weekend that left four dead and numerous people wounded, including two young girls. The move restores the additional staff Baca ordered into the gang-plagued city earlier this year after homicide levels in 2005 reached near-record rates. In recent weeks, sheriff's officials said, staffing had dwindled as some task force members were promoted or transferred.
