3 killed in South Los Angeles shootings

Three people were killed overnight in two separate shootings in South Los Angeles, police said Sunday.

In the first incident, Saturday shortly after 8:30 p.m., an 18-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were killed in a drive-by shooting in Watts, Officer Karen Rayner said. Both had been standing in a driveway in the 10600 block of Grape Street when the shooting occurred.

The two victims were transported to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead, Rayner said. Police found multiple shell casings on the scene but did not have information on the car or the suspects.

In the second incident, a man in his 20s was shot and killed in Harbor Gateway at around 2:15 a.m. Sunday. Police received a call from someone who reported hearing a single gunshot.

 The victim was found on the sidewalk in the 21800 block of Denker Avenue, Rayner said.

Officers did not release the names of the three victims.
