(May 5, 2012) -- A teenage girl and an adult woman were hit by gunfire in the 1600 block of Stanton Place (roughly two blocks east of 16th/Cherry) on Friday night, May 4 in what appears to be an exchange of gunfire between two groups
LBPD Public Information Officer Lisa Massacani tells LBReport.comofficers responded to a shots call about 11 p.m. in the 1600 block of Stanton Place. They found a juvenile in her late teens and a 19 year old woman with gunshot wounds to the upper body.
Both were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing, Massacani says, but it appears that there was an exchange of gunfire between two groups that resulted in the victims being hit. There is no suspect information for now, she says...and the incident is possibly gang related.
