Teen shot in East Valinda

EAST VALINDA — A 17-year-old boy was shot and wounded Friday in a possibly gang-related attack in a residential East Valinda neighborhood, authorities said.
The teen was walking down the street about 2:30 p.m. in the 17400 block of Tadmore Street when he was approached by two male Latinos in a car, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Lopez said.
One of the suspects shot him in the leg, he added.
The teen was airlifted to a local hospital but he is expected to be OK, Lopez said.
The two suspects appear to be gang members though deputies are still investigating the incident, officials said.
The shooting comes less than 24-hours after a murder-suicide that occurred about 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Samgerry Drive and Rimgrove Avenue.
