A father and two teenagers were shot and wounded outside a Mar Vista liquor store near Culver Boulevard and Slauson Avenue at around 9 p.m. Saturday night, police said Sunday.
Officer Fernando Alvarez of LAPD’s Pacific Division said about 10 shots were fired in what may have been a gang-related shooting and could be connected to a shooting that took place Thursday night at Oakwood Park in Venice.
The man was shot in the upper back and is suffering from a collapsed lung; the 15-year-old boy was hit in the shoulder by a bullet; and a bullet grazed the head of a 13-year-old girl, police said.
The LA Times is reporting that the three people shot were a man, his son and his son's girlfriend, in what may be a case of mistaken identity.
All three victims are in stable condition at a local hospital, police said.
Patch will provide more details as they become available.
