Two men were killed and another man was injured after a shooting — that police believe may be gang related — in the 5000 block of Slauson Avenue in the Del Rey area Sunday, July 10th.

Three Hispanic men were on the sidewalk of Slauson Avenue near the Mar Vista Gardens area, shortly after midnight when they were approached by two unknown male Hispanic suspects, said Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Pacific Division Lt. Phil Fontanetta.

A conversation ensued and the two male suspects began to shoot at the three men, striking all three of them, he said.

Two of the men were killed during the shooting and the third man was injured.

The two suspects fled the scene. The shooting appears to be gang related, Fontanetta alleged.

Police said some witnesses saw part of the shooting but were unable to provide a full story.

The third victim may be able to provide a more accurate description of the suspects, he said.

The investigation for the case is continuing.
