A man was shot and killed Friday night in La Puente and two other men were wounded, authorities said.

The shooting occurred in the 300 block of South Stimson Avenue, near the border with City of Industry, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Ed Hernandez said.

The two wounded men were hospitalized but were expected to survive, Hernandez said. No arrests have been made in the case. Hernandez said he did not have more details about the 8:15 p.m. shooting.
