A man who allegedly shot two people early this morning in Koreatown is in custody, police said. The man drove by a residence in the 3200 block of West Eighth Street about 2:40 a.m. and allegedly fired "several rounds" into the home, striking one person in the chest and grazing another person's face, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Julianne Sohn said. The victims were taken to a hospital, where they are in stable condition, Sohn said. The unnamed suspect later returned to the scene of the shooting and is in police custody.
