LOS ANGELES — One person was killed and three others were wounded early Thursday evening in a shooting in the Broadway-Manchester area, near the route where thousands had earlier lined streets for the funeral procession of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle.
The shooting occurred about 6:25 p.m. in the area of 103rd and Main streets, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Jeff Lee.
All four were taken to a hospital, Lee said.
LAPD Chief Michel Moore tweeted that the victims were three men and one woman between 30 and 50 years old and that one of them had died.
“In the midst of this procession we have a multi-4 Shooting at 103 St and Main St.,” he tweeted, adding, “Suspects in a gray Hyundai opened fire on the victims.”
The extent of the wounded victims’ injuries were not immediately available.
“We must stop this senseless violence,” Moore tweeted.
Although the procession had passed near the shooting scene, it was not in the area when the shooting occurred, police said. There were no indications the shooting was related to the procession, the Los Angeles Times reported.
