El Sereno shooting leaves one person dead

One man was killed  in El Sereno tonight after gunfire erupted on Tampico Avenue in the neighborhood’s second shooting in two days.  The victim was killed in a shooting reported shortly before 11 p.m. on Tampico Avenue north of Huntington Drive, according to early police reports cited by Lt. Ellis Imaizumi with the Hollenbeck Division.  Officers are trying to determine if there were any other victims, he said. No further details were available at this time.

Tonight’s shooting took place one day after a man was shot in the leg a few blocks away on Locke Avenue in what police believe was a gang-related, drive-by shooting. Imaizumi said Thursday’s victim was  a known gang member.
