Los Angeles:   On Sunday, August 26, 2012 around 4:00 a.m., Olympic Area officers responded to a shooting call in the 2700 block of San Marino Avenue in Los Angeles.  When the officers arrived, they observed three victims suffering from gunshot wounds on the front porch of an apartment complex.  There were two male victims and one female victim between 18 and 20 years of age.  All three victims were transported to a local hospital by LAFD Rescue personnel.  One male victim was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.  The remaining two victims are in stable condition.

The name of the deceased is being withheld until next of kin is notified.

Detectives from the West Bureau Homicide Unit are handling the investigation.  Detectives’ investigation revealed two suspects, described as male Hispanics, walked up to the victims and open fire.  The motive for the shooting appears to be gang related.  There is no further description of the suspects.
