Eagle Rock shooting: 1 dead, 1 injured

EAGLE ROCK, LOS ANGELES

Authorities responded to the 2900 block of Sagamore Way just before 11 a.m. and found two gunshot victims. Neighbors said they heard three shots.

"There was a pause between the first one and then the other two. So there was one, and it was a pause, and then it was two right away," said neighbor Kristen Lane.

A man who had a gunshot wound to the head was declared dead at the scene. His name has not been released. A woman was taken to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Neighbors say the victims are a couple who moved into the neighborhood about three years ago. According to police, the couple has a 5-year-old son. The boy wasn't injured, but police say he may have witnessed the shooting.

Police say two male suspects fled in a mid-sized sedan. A suspect description was not immediately available.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Los Angeles police at (877) LAPD-24-7.
