Teen killed, two men wounded in Santa Fe Springs car-to-car shooting

SANTA FE SPRINGS — A 17-year-old boy died and two men were wounded but expected to survive after a car-to-car shooting on the 5 Freeway late Wednesday, authorities said.
Investigators did not release the dead teenager’s name Thursday afternoon.
The three shooting victims, who had been riding in a minivan, flagged down an ambulance crew just after 9:40 p.m. at Rosecrans Boulevard and Marquardt Avenue, Lt. Dave Dolson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau said.
“The information that we have is that it happened on the freeway,” he said, though details of the shooting remained under under investigation Thursday.
The attack was believed to have taken place on a 3/4-mile stretch of the northbound 5 Freeway, between Carmenita Road and Rosecrans Boulevard, investigators said.
After being wounded, the men exited the freeway at Rosecrans Boulevard and drove east about a mile until they spotted an ambulance and sought help, officials said.
No description of the vehicle that contained the shooter or shooters was available, Dolson said, and a motive in the shooting was not clear.
The teenage victim, who was a passenger in the car, was pronounced dead shortly after the shooting at UCI Medical Center in Orange County, officials said.
The two other men who were wounded in the minivan were in their 20s and 30s, Dolson said. They were hospitalized in stable condition.
