A man was hospitalized and listed in stable condition after being shot early Saturday morning in Boyle Heights, City News Service reported.
Police officers responded at around 4 am to a shots fired call at Lorena and Beswick streets – just south of the 5 Freeway – where they found the man with multiple gunshot wounds. According to an LAPD spokesperson, officers learned the victim had been standing alone when a car drove up and someone began firing shots at him, striking him several times before driving away.
The spokesperson said police believe the shooting was gang-related.
Paramedics took the man to a hospital nearby. No suspect has been identified.

Paramedics took the woman to a hospital, where she was in stable conditions.
According to City News Service, an LAPD helicopter located two possible suspects on the First Street bridge, and they were taken into custody.
