Two Killed, One Wounded In South Gate Shooting

SOUTH GATE (CBSLA) - Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriffs' Department's Homicide Bureau are assisting the South Gate Police Department Saturday in their investigation of a double shooting in South Gate.

Authorities arrived on scene just after 3:15 a.m. on Saturday morning to the parking lot of Leland R. Weaver Library on Tweedy Boulevard. They found one man fatally shot.

They were then directed to a bar nearby, still on Tweedy Boulevard, where they found two additional shooting victims. One of those men was pronounced dead on the scene, while the other, a 41-year-old man, was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

The initial report suggests that an altercation occurred in the back parking lot of the bar, leading to the shooting.

The South Gate Police Department investigation is ongoing, with the help of LA County Sheriff's deputies.

There was no information readily available on any suspects involved at the time of this report.

Anyone with information about the shootings was asked to call the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
