A pregnant woman was shot in the stomach, killing her 6-month-old fetus, in what Los Angeles police termed a drug-related dispute with a 15-year-old alleged gang member early Saturday. Other victims of weekend violence included a 65-year-old Long Beach man who authorities say was the random victim of a drive-by shooting and a 41-year-old Cerritos man who was stabbed to death in his bedroom.

A coalition of civil rights lawyers Thursday condemned the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office for launching a criminal investigation into the conduct of a private investigator for the plaintiffs in a massive brutality case against the Lynwood sheriff's station. "The Department of Justice would better serve the people of Southern California by prosecuting the law enforcement officers responsible for making this area infamous for its police brutality, rather than the messengers who bring evidence of civil rights violations to its attention," said a statement released on behalf of 21 lawyers.

King beating. U.S. District Judge Terry J. Hatter made his comment on the eve of today's Board of Supervisors hearing on alleged brutality in the Sheriff's Department.
