Two men wounded Saturday in separate Norwalk shootings

NORWALK >> Two separate shootings in Norwalk Saturday left two men wounded, but expected to survive, authorities said.
Deputies received reports about 4:15 a.m. that a person had been shot at Adoree Street and Dalwood Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robin Limon said.
Officials found no victim at the scene, but were soon informed that a gunshot victim had been brought to a local hospital, the lieutenant said.
The victim, a 45-year-old Norwalk man, told investigators he had been driving down the street when he was flagged down by someone, Limon said.
“The victim said he remembered being hit in the head and shot,” she said. He was being treated for a gunshot wound to his back that did not appear to be life-threatening.
No suspect description was available, nor were further details regarding the circumstances of the shooting.
A little more than 10 hours later, and about 2 miles away, authorities received another report of gunfire in the area of Clarkdale Avenue and Walnut Street, Limon said.
Deputies found a Norwalk man in his 20s in an a nearby alleyway suffering from a gunshot wound to his ankle, she said.
The injured man did not cooperate with investigators, and no further details were available. His wound was also no considered life-threatening.
The motives in both shooting remained under investigation, however sheriff’s gang detectives were tasked with the cases, Limon said.
The violence came after a fatal shooting Wednesday that left a Norwalk man dead at outside a 7-Eleven Store at Alondra Boulevard and Studebaker Road, as well as a fatal deputy-involved shooting of a Norwalk man at the same intersection on Thursday.
