Teenage gunman on bike shoots and injures father, 1-year-old on Los Angeles street
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Police say a teenage gunman on a bicycle shot and wounded a baby and father in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles police Capt. Phillip Tingirides tells KCAL-TV that a boy between 15 and 17 years old rode the bike past the 24-year-old father and 1-year-old boy as they stood on a sidewalk in front of a home in Watts and fired several rounds Monday evening.
Tingirides says the baby was hit once in the torso and was in very critical condition at a hospital, the father was hit once in the shoulder and was hospitalized in serious condition.
The suspect fled and hasn't been arrested.
No names have been released and police could not immediately name a motive, but Tingirides said they were leaning heavily toward gang rivalry being the cause.
