Four people were shot on Sunday, two of them critically, in South Los Angeles and authorities were searching for whoever shot them.

The attack took place around 2:45 p.m. in the 7100 block of South Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.

The wounded included three men and one woman, Stewart said. Two of the men were listed in critical condition and the other two victims suffered non-life-threatening wounds, Stewart said. All four were taken to a hospital for treatment, she added.
