LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Police Department Monday was investigating two shootings in different parts of the city that left men hospitalized.
A 38-year-old man was wounded just after midnight Monday morning while walking in the area of Crenshaw Boulevard and Coliseum Place in the Leimert Park area, said Officer D. Orris of the LAPD’s Operation Center.
The victim told officers he heard gunshots and realized he was wounded, Orris said. He was taken by a civilian to a hospital for treatment and had stable vital signs.
Police found a 25-year-old man at a hospital claiming he didn’t know who shot him, the officer said.
He was wounded at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday in the 2400 block of Michigan Avenue in Boyle Heights, Orris said.
Both shootings were possibly gang-related, he said.
