A man was killed and a woman was injured following a gang-related shooting in Los Angeles' West Adams District.

The shooting took place near Longwood Avenue and Adams Boulevard shortly before midnight.

The injured 50-year-old woman was transported to an area hospital in critical condition. The 56-year-old man was shot multiple times and died at a hospital.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unclear. An SUV was towed away from the scene at around 5 a.m.

The westbound 10 Freeway La Brea off-ramp was closed for the investigation, but it has since reopened.

Los Angeles police said a person of interest was taken into custody in the nearby Wilshire District, but he was released.

Also, SWAT officers made an arrest near the intersection of West View and 23rd streets, but it remains unclear if that arrest was related to the West Adams shooting.
