Three killed in Compton shooting
Police this morning are looking for the gunman who shot and killed three people near a Compton barbershop Sunday.
One woman and two men, who have not been identified, were killed about 7:05 p.m. in an apartment next to the barbershop in the 1200 block of East Rosecrans Avenue, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Rick Pedroza said.
Authorities said they are unsure if the shooting was gang-related, and Pedroza said that stretch of Rosecrans is "a high crime area."
