LA MIRADA — Two teens used an assault rifle to carry out a shooting Wednesday in a residential La Mirada neighborhood, authorities said.
The shooting took place about 11:25 a.m. on Bora Drive, just east of Marquardt Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Mendoza said.
Witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots — which one witness described as automatic gunfire — before two vehicles sped away from the area, the sergeant said.
A maroon SUV, possibly a 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe or similar vehicle, was seen driving away from the scene, along with a maroon Chevrolet Camaro, Mendoza said. One of the vehicles had been struck by gunfire.
The shooters initially believed to have been in the Camaro, officials said. They were described as two Latino teenagers, one of them wearing a black T-shirt and white shorts.
Deputies found no signs of anyone wounded at the scene, though they did find spent, rifle-caliber bullet casings.
Mendoza said the circumstances and motive of the shooting remained under investigation Wednesday afternoon.
