Two Men Shot In Oakwood, Gunfire Heard Across Venice Beach

UPDATE: Well, apparently the shooters were gang members, and yelled out the name of a local Oakwood gang before they started shooting which is a sad turn of information in this case. They followed the victim home after a road rage incident with the victims. Suspects followed the victim to his house confronted him – and his son. Victims apparently grabbed weapons to defend themselves and during the course of the argument were shot by the suspects. Possibly two vehicles involved… a silver sedan and a black SUV.

Here is the link to the ABC7 coverage including video I supplied them (yay) 

Just after 8 p.m. 2 male whites in their late 20’s early 30’s were shot by a group of male blacks at the 800 block of Indiana in Oakwood. One victim was immediately transported to the hospital and the other was still being attended to by paramedics before being taken to the hospital about 20 minutes later. The victims had a large sword and several knives around them when officers arrived on scene. The suspects were reported to be 5 male blacks wearing white bandanas on their faces. They fled on foot, and an additional witness said they then fled in a large black SUV or an Escalade. Condition of the victims was not known, but the one I saw looked alert. There were bullet casings all over the ground at scene. LAPD has been on high alert with the shootings in Oakwood and in the area of Mar Vista Gardens lately. More info when we get it!
