Two women wounded in Pasadena shooting; dozens of shot fired in neighborhood

A shooter or shooters unleashed a barrage of bullets in a Pasadena neighborhood late Saturday, injuring two women and striking three houses, police said.
The attempted murder took place about 9:20 p.m. on Marengo Avenue, just north of Orange Grove Boulevard, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said.
A 29-year-old Pomona woman was sitting in a car with her boyfriend, a 31-year-old Pasadena man, prior to the attack, Clawson said. The car was pulled over along the curb and the engine was running.
“Without warning, a bunch of shots were fired,” he said. “Dozens of shots were fired at their vehicle.”
The car was struck several times, and the woman inside was wounded in the arm, Clawson said. The boyfriend drove her to an area hospital, where she was treated for an injury not considered life-threatening.
Another woman who happened to be walking down the street also suffered a superficial graze wound to her arm, Clawson said. She was treated at the scene by paramedics and did not require hospitalization.
Also struck by the gunfire were three nearby homes, though no one inside was injured, the lieutenant said.
No suspect description was available in the shooting, he added, which was being investigated as possibly gang-related.
