A man and his son were hospitalized with non-life-threatening wounds Tuesday following a gang-related shooting in Venice police said stemmed from a road rage incident.
The shooting happened around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday in the 800 block of Indiana Avenue, near Lincoln Boulevard, said Lt. Marco Munoz of the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Station.
Several suspects who cut off a man on a motorcycle exchanged words with the rider, telling him they were gang members and that they knew where the man lived because he stopped at his residence, Munoz said.
The man went into his home, but about an hour later, five suspects returned to the residence and a confrontation ensued, during which the man, who is in his 50s, and his son, who is in his 20s, were shot, Munoz said.
The suspects, who had yelled out the name of their gang, fled on foot and remain at large, he said.
Detailed descriptions of the suspects were not available, nor was a description of the vehicle involved in the original traffic dispute.
