Two men wounded in Pico Rivera shooting

PICO RIVERA — Two men suffered wounds in a shooting in a residential Pico Rivera neighborhood Wednesday evening, officials said.
The gunfire was reported about 7:25 p.m. in the 9500 block of Burma Road, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Alex Villanueva said.
Deputies responded to reports of gunman chasing after a man while shooting at him when they encountered two men who had been shot, according to officials and sheriff’s radio traffic.
One of the men had been shot three times in the torso, and the other had been struck in the leg, Villanueva said. Both were initially expected to survive their injuries.
No suspect description or motive was available, though deputies suspected the shooting was gang-related, Villanueva said. The victims were not cooperating with investigators.
A blue Chevrolet pickup truck with an extra cab was spotted leaving the area at the time of the shooting, he said, though it had not yet been determined if the truck was involved.
