Atwater gang shootings leave two wounded *

Two victims were hit by gunfire in Atwater Village Saturday night during a pair of separate shootings that appear to be gang related, police said.  One of the victims was injured on La Clede Avenue and a second at a different location, said Sgt. Lisa Phillips with the Northeast Division.  It’s not clear whether the shootings were related but the victims, who survived the shootings, are believed to be gang members, she said. Residents reported hearing multiple shots before midnight on La Clede between Silver Lake Boulevard and Tyburn Street near the site of a loud party. Said one resident via email:

We heard 5-7 gunshots, and a car speed away. I immediately called 911.  There was chaos from the party. Lots of screaming and people scattering.

* Uodate: ABC7 is reporting that three people were injured during the two shootings. The second shooting took place in the 4100 block of Chevy Chase Drive in the north end of Atwater.
