One man in a wheelchair was killed, as well as the man who was pushing him.

While the investigation continues, the men were killed in what appears to be a drive-by gang shooting. But friends of the victims say the men had no gang ties. Sheriff's deputies don't know why the men were targeted.

The man in the wheelchair was identified by friends only as "David."

Deputies and SWAT team members found one suspect's car about a mile away from the church. Authorities have identified that one suspect, but say there may be others.

L.A. County Sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's help to solve this crime. If you have any information, please contact homicide investigators at (323) 890-5500.
