Recent crimes reported  near the scene where a man was wounded in South L.A.
Two separate car-to-car shootings broke out Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles, leaving one man wounded and police looking for the attackers.

The first incident was reported shortly after 2 p.m. near San Pedro Street and Imperial Highway in South L.A., when an apparent argument between occupants in two vehicles escalated into gunfire, according to police.

A gunman fired twice, hitting a 23-year-old man. He was taken to a hospital and listed in stable condition. Detectives suspect that the incident was gang related, according to Officer Bruce Borihanh of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The second shooting broke out about two hours later when an attacker in one vehicle fired several shots at a man in another car near Washington Boulevard and Ardmore Street in the Harvard Heights neighborhood west of downtown.

The shooter, who was with several other people, fled northbound on Ardmore, the LAPD said. No injuries were reported, and no motive had been established.
