Suspects sought in Cypress Park double shooting
Los Angeles police were searching Wednesday for at least two people believed to have shot a man and a youth with an assault rifle at a Cypress Park residence.
The shooting occurred just after 2 p.m. in the 2600 block of Loosmore Street. Los Angeles Police Department officials said they are investigating whether the shooting was gang-related.
Police were told the suspects asked the victims "Where are you from?" before firing multiple times.
The assailants apparently fled in a white Chevrolet Astro van.
The conditions of the victims -- an adult shot in the leg and a youth shot in the chest -- were not not immediately available, and their ages were not released.
Police were looking into reports that an AK-47 was used in the attack.
