January 11, 2012 |  5:07 pm

Los Angeles police were searching Wednesday for at least two people believed to have shot a man and a youth with an assault rifle at a Cypress Park residence.

The shooting occurred just after 2 p.m. in the 2600 block of Loosmore Street. Los Angeles Police Department officials said they are investigating whether the shooting was gang-related.

Police were told the suspects asked the victims "Where are you from?" before firing multiple times.

The assailants apparently fled in a white Chevrolet Astro van.

The conditions of the victims -- an adult shot in the leg and a youth shot in the chest -- were not not immediately available, and their ages were not released.

Police were looking into reports that an AK-47 was used in the attack.
