Shooting in Downey leaves two men in critical condition

Two men were in critical condition after a shooting in Downey on Saturday night.

Police responded to a report of shots fired in the 11400 block of Horton Avenue at 8:50 p.m. and found two men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, according to a Downey police statement Sunday. Paramedics transported the victims to a local hospital.

Police had apparently identified a suspect, but did not provide a description. They said the suspect and victims were acquainted and had apparently argued before the shooting. They did not release the names of the victims or suspect or any other details.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call Det. Steve Aubuchon at (562) 904-2361 or Det. Pete Chamberlain at (562) 904-2328.
