Detectives have learned that South Los Angeles deputies responded to the 10100 block of Firmona Avenue, regarding a “gunshot victim” call.  Upon their arrival, they found a male Hispanic adult suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

While at the location, deputies learned that the suspect, a male Hispanic adult, may have ran away from the location towards the 10600 block of Mansel Avenue, where he shot the second male Hispanic adult victim. That victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

After shooting the second victim, the suspect ran towards the 10400 block of Mansel Avenue, where he attempted to carjack a male Hispanic adult. During the carjacking, the suspect shot the driver of the vehicle.  South Los Angeles deputies arrived at the scene and detained the suspect without incident. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he is listed in “fair” condition.

The motive and relationship, if any between the victims and the suspect is unknown at this time.

The suspect is being detained pending questioning by Homicide detectives.
