1 dead, 1 injured after shooting at Bell Gardens marijuana store


A male youth was killed and another person was injured after a shooting at a marijuana store in Bell Gardens in what is believed to be an attempted robbery Wednesday night, authorities said.

The shooting was reported just before 8 p.m. at the store on the 5800 block of Florence Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which is assisting the Bell Gardens Police Department in the investigation.

Bell Gardens officers responded to the scene and found two people with gunshot wounds, authorities said.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene, the other was taken to a local hospital in an unknown condition.

Several people entered the store in an apparent attempt to rob the store when a shooting ensued, investigators said. Some then fled the scene.

Authorities did not immediately identify the two victims. In both cases, it was also not clear whether the person was involved in the attempted robbery or worked in the shop.

The sheriff’s department said the “shooting is being investigated as gang-related.”
