A man was fatally shot and another was wounded during a possible home invasion in South Los Angeles early today, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 2:13 a.m. in the 9000 block of Stanford Avenue near 90th Street, said LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman. 

Two men broke into a single-family home, then shot one man in the residence in the torso and the other in the neck, she said. Both victims, who were not identified, were taken by paramedics to hospitals. The man who was shot in the torso died, Eisenman said. The two victims were 30 to 40 years old.  

The incident is being investigated as gang-related, police said.
