Two men where shot in a drive-by shooting Saturday night and both are in stable condition in local hospitals, according to Lt. Angela Shepherd of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The two victims, one 25 years old and one 27 years old, were standing on the sidewalk in the area of the 100 block of West Altadena Drive around 10:35 p.m. when a black sedan drove by. Five to seven shots were fired from the sedan and the two men were both hit, one in the leg and one in the neck, according to Shepherd.
The 25-year-old victim, who was shot in the leg was transported to Verdugo Hills Hospital and is in stable condition. The 27-year-old was transported to Huntington and is also in stable condition.
There are no descriptions so far of the shooters except for the information on their car.
Shepherd said that while drive-by shootings are typically gang related, there is not yet any definitive information in this case linking it to local gangs.
The shooting is not related to a fatal stabbing that took place earlier in the day, she added.
