A 4-year-old boy is in critical condition after being hit by a stray bullet in a gang-related shooting, police said. The boy was injured Wednesday night when a man got into an argument with a group of people that escalated into a fight and another man pulled out a gun, said Nancy Pratt, a spokeswoman for the Long Beach Police Department. The shooter's intended victim ran away and was not hit, police said. But the boy was struck while standing with his mother outside a relative's house on Earl Street.

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.
