A woman died and a man was shot multiple times in a suspected gang shooting in Inglewood late Tuesday night.

Authorities said it happened around 11:45 p.m. in the area of Ash Avenue north of Manchester Boulevard. The man and woman were sitting in a car when they got into an argument with three male suspects, who ended up opening fire.

The woman was shot once in the back, while the man was hit several times. The couple were able to drive to a nearby gas station and call police for help, flagging down officers when they arrived.

The man and woman were taken to a hospital, where the woman died shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday. The man was listed in serious, but stable condition.

Authorities said the three male suspects fled the scene and the shooting appeared to be gang related.

No further description of the suspects was provided, which has left some neighbors in the area on edge.

"Working class people just trying to have a peaceful neighborhood. This brings questionable things to the neighborhood and what's going on and the activities that are going on at night," resident Tina Armstrong said.

Authorities continued to gather evidence and residents said they hope the shooting is not a sign of more trouble ahead.

The investigation was ongoing.
