Shooting victims tell LAPD they were attacked by man on bike
Two shooting victims told officers Tuesday night that they were shot by a gunman on a bike as they drove in their vehicle in South Los Angeles, police said.
The victims, two adult males, were in the vehicle with a woman when they flagged down a California Highway Patrol officer near Crenshaw Boulevard and West 57th Street in Hyde Park and told him about the shooting, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
One of the men was wounded in the thigh, and the other was struck in the arm, Officer Karen Rayner said.
She said both men were taken to hospital, where they were being treated for the non-life-threatening injuries.
The Los Angeles Police Department, which was handling the incident, said no other information was immediately available.
