Shootings at L.A.-area parties leave two dead, one wounded

Shootings outside parties in Pacoima and the West Adams district have left two people dead and another wounded, police said Sunday.

A man in his mid-20s was shot in the West Adams neighborhood at about 12:15 a.m. Sunday near Raymond Avenue and 25th Street, after getting into a dispute with a suspect who opened fire and then fled on foot.

The victim, whose name was withheld, was found lying on the sidewalk with several wounds to his upper body. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, said Los Angeles police Officer Karen Rayner.

Police have not identified a suspect but said the shooting was believed to be gang-related.

In Pacoima, a man was shot and wounded at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday in the 12600 block of Montford Street, said Los Angeles police Lt. Robert Davis. The victim, whose name was withheld, had left a party tent set up in the frontyard and began arguing with someone driving by on the street. The suspect got out of the car and shot the man, Davis said.

The victim was taken to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, where he was expected to undergo surgery for an arm wound, Davis said. Police have not identified a suspect.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old boy shot Friday night outside another Pacoima party has died. Police said Ricky Suarez was the victim of a suspected gang-related shooting that occurred at about 10:30 p.m. in the 12700 block of Muscatine Street.

He had been on life support at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center before he died as a result of his injuries, Davis said. No arrests have been made in the shooting.
