Two people were killed Saturday night in what police say was a gang shooting in South Los Angeles. The shooting started at about 9:30 p.m. on 50th Street near Central Avenue, Los Angeles police Sgt. Peter Gamino said. A man was shot while driving and crashed into a parked car, Los Angeles police spokesman Officer Jason Lee said. He died at the scene. Nearby, a woman walking home was struck and killed by a stray bullet. "It appears she was shot with a bullet intended for the initial victim," Lee said.
