Two men were wounded in a drive-by shooting about 9:15 p.m. Saturday in the 200 block of East 119th Street in Watts, police said.

The men, who were not identified, were standing in front of a home when a man drove up in a blue minivan and fired two rounds, hitting one victim in the neck and the other in the chest, police said.

Both victims were in stable condition at local hospitals, said Los Angeles police Sgt. Duane Kelliher.
Police have not identified a suspect, but the shooting is believed to be gang-related, Kelliher said.
