CYPRESS PARK — A drive-by shooting in Cypress Park early this morning left one man dead and one injured.
The shooting occurred at around 1 a.m. in the 200 block of Avenue 37, said Sgt. Alaniz with the LAPD Northeast Division. The two victims were sitting in front of the location when a suspect or suspects in a grey compact car pulled up and shot both of them.
Both victims were transported to the hospital to be treated for their wounds. One of the victims later died.
The shooting appears to be gang related, said Alaniz. Police said they have numerous witnesses and a homicide investigation is currently underway.
The names and ages of the victims have yet to be released.
