One killed, another injured in South Los Angeles gas station shooting

One man was killed and another was injured in an early Monday morning shooting at a gas station in South Los Angeles, police said.

Two men in their 20s had pulled into the Valero gas station at Western  and Vernon avenues when they were approached by two suspects and shot, said Los Angeles Police Department Det. Sean Hansen. One man, a 22-year-old, was pronounced dead at the scene and the other, 26, was shot in the arm and chest and taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Hansen said.

The suspects fled the scene.

The police would not release the victims' names. Police are investigating the shooting and do not know whether it was gang-related.

this some thing that the community should work with the the police to put and end on senseless violence great site really informative i learned a lot great stuff keep it up

So...somebody was killed at a gas station. I wonder if that means the LA City Council will initiate a moratorium on new gas stations - or perhaps the city attorney will get involved. Oh no, wait, that's Medical Marijuana that they use that excuse for. My mistake.

the 22 year old male is my boyfriend chad l0ved and cherished i just happened to come across this page dropin by to show love to chad jarmel andrew my baby i l0ve him 4ever and 4 allways

That's really a sad news. Why is it that there are no endings in crime?
