Authorities were searching Wednesday for a gunman who shot and wounded two men sitting at a bus stop in an unincorporated area near Compton.

A 1990s silver Nissan Altima drove up to the bus bench about 9 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of South Avalon and West Compton boulevards, said officials with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

At least one occupant opened fired on the victims, hitting them in the upper body.

Both men were taken to a hospital. A spokeswoman said Wednesday they were in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
