No one injured in Duarte drive-by shooting

DUARTE — No one was injured late Friday when apparent gang-members opened fire on a Duarte home, authorities said.
The drive-by shooting was reported about 8:45 p.m. in the 1900 block of Bradbury Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Walker said.
The attackers were described only as two black males who were last seen fleeing west on Broach Avenue, the sergeant said. They yelled out “Du Roc” during the shooting — a reference to the Du Rock Crips street gang that calls Duarte home.
No one was struck by the gunfire, Walker said, though a house was shot twice.
The City of Monrovia is currently trying to get a gang injunction against the Du Roc Crips as well as another area street gang known as Monrovia Nuevo Varrio.
Duarte has not joined the injunction, and city officials have said they fear that an injunction against the two gangs would serve to strengthen a third, Eastside Duarte, which was not named in the injunction proposal.
Feuding between black and Latino gangs in the Monrovia-Duarte area has erupted into violence in recent years, and is blamed for the deaths of four people in late 2007 and early 2008.
