Man, 2 Teens Shot and Wounded Outside Mar Vista Liquor Store

Three people are shot Saturday night in what police say may have been a gang-related incident, after a shooting in Venice on Thursday.

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.
