Authorities are investigating a gang-related car-to-car shooting in South L.A. that injured two women leaving a funeral service, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The driver, a 38-year-old woman, and passenger, a 30-year-old woman, were shot in the 500 block of West Slauson Avenue at about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday after a male suspect drove alongside the vehicle and fired multiple rounds, said Officer Norma Eisenman.

Both women were in stable condition Wednesday, she said.

"They had just left a funeral service and were traveling westbound when they were struck," Eisenman said.

There have been no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.
