1 killed, 2 injured in Wilmington shooting; police searching for suspects

One woman was killed and two others were injured Tuesday afternoon after a shooting in the Wilmington neighborhood of Los Angeles, and police are searching for suspects. 

Calls came in for a shooting in the 800 block of North Lagoon Avenue shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday, about a mile from Los Angeles Harbor College, the Los Angeles Police Department said. When officers arrived on the scene they discovered three people who'd suffered gunshot wounds — a 20-year-old woman, a 20-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman. 

All three people were transferred to the hospital according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. The 20-year-old woman died from her injuries, but the other two are said to be in stable condition.

Witnesses told FOX 11's Ed Laskos that two men drove up to the home, got out of the car and started shooting. A relative said that the 20-year-old woman killed was not the intended target, but her boyfriend standing next to her was. He was not hit.

Family tells FOX 11 that they had just returned from the cemetery from a funeral and were holding the reception at their home. That's when the shooting happened.

Police said they were searching for two male suspects, but did not provide any suspect descriptions.
