One man was killed and another injured in a suspected gang-related shooting in Wilmington, officials said Monday.

The shooting took place at West E Street and Gulf Avenue about 7 p.m. Sunday when "one gangster pulls up, shoots two other gangsters," said Bruce Borihanh, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Both men were taken to the hospital, where one later died. The surviving victim was not cooperating with investigators, Borihanh said.
