Apparent gang members wound teen in Pico Rivera shooting

PICO RIVERA — A teenage boy was shot and wounded Friday in Pico Rivera, officials said.
The shooting occurred about 6:50 p.m. on Passons Boulevard near Telegraph Road, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. John Adams said.
The wounded teen, estimated to be 16 or 17, was shot in the leg and is expected to survive, the sergeant said.
He was walking with his girlfriend when a white, 4-door vehicle — possible a Chevrolet Impala — passed by, Adams said.
The car turned around and came back before the two men inside got out and approached the victim, he said. One of them was armed with a handgun.
Some gang-related remarks were shouted before the gunman opened fire at the teen as he was running away, Adams said. The attackers then fled.
A woman was driving the wounded teen to the hospital when she spotted a sheriff’s deputy and flagged him down for help, he said.
Officials described the attackers only as Latino men in their early 20s.
