LOS ANGELES — Police say five people were hit by gunfire and wounded — some critically — in a South Los Angeles shooting.

Officials say the shooting Saturday evening in a residential area about ten miles south of downtown LA appeared to be gang-related.

Investigators have not released a suspect description or said whether any of those hit were the intended targets.
