Family attacked in East Valinda shooting

EAST VALINDA — A group of attackers shot a car occupied by a mother, father and infant in a seemingly unprovoked attack Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
The family members were driving when several bullets struck their car, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Hiroshi Yokoyama said.
“Nobody was hit, thankfully,” he added.
The shooting was reported at 2:36 p.m. near Sandalwood Avenue and Boulay Street in the unincorporated county area of East Valinda, the lieutenant said.
The attackers were described as three Latino men in their early 20s in a black, four-door car, possibly a Honda or Toyota, Yokoyama said.
They opened fire on the family’s car with a handgun from inside their own vehicle, he said. The attackers were last seen driving south on Sandalwood.
A motive in the shooting was unclear, officials said. The East Valinda family that was attacked did not appear to have gang ties, and there were no reports of any prior confrontation before the shooting.
No further details were available.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Industry Station at (626) 330-3322.
