1 killed, 3 hurt in shooting near South LA pot dispensary

One person was killed and three others wounded Wednesday night in two shootings in South Los Angeles that appear to be related, police said.

The first shooting was reported at 9:50 p.m. in the area of Imperial Highway and Broadway, said Officer Tony Im of the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Division. Arriving officers found one victim dead of a gunshot wound, Im said.

The first shooting appeared to have taken place at a marijuana dispensary, according to police.

The second shooting was reported three minutes later near 115th and Spring streets where police found three other people wounded. All three of those victims were taken to the hospital in stable condition, police said.

The shootings are believed to be related given the close proximity of the shootings as well as the times, Im said.

There was no suspect description available.
