SUN VALLEY, Calif.—A 19-year-old woman was killed and a 20-year-old man was hospitalized following a drive-by shooting Dec. 17 in Sun Valley.
Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Foothill Station responded at approximately 1:20 a.m. Sunday to 11110 Lorne St., south of the Sun Valley Recreation Center between Fair and Vineland avenues, where they learned the victims were approached by a group of young men in a dark, four-door sedan, an LAPD spokesman told City News Service.
The shooters opened fire several times at the victims, striking both of them, he said.
Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded to the scene and took both victims to a hospital, where the woman was pronounced dead, police said. The woman’s name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.
The male victim was hospitalized, underwent surgery, and was expected to survive his injuries.
The suspects drove away from the scene in an unknown direction.
Anyone with any information about the shooting was urged to call LAPD Valley Bureau Homicide at 818-374-9550 or, during non-business hours or weekends, at 877-527-3247. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477, or tips can be sent through the website.
