Drive-by-shooting sends man to the hospital


LOS ANGELES, Calif.–A man in his 50s was hospitalized early this morning for treatment of a bullet wound in his leg suffered in a South Los Angeles drive-by shooting, a police officer said.

The shooting was reported at about 11:50 p.m. Sunday at Manchester Avenue and Wilton Place, according to Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Rudy Alaniz.

The man was standing outside when the suspect or suspects drove by and fired gunshots at him, striking him in the leg, Alaniz said.

Police had no suspect information early in their investigation, he said, and it was not determined if the shooting was gang-related.
