La Mirada Crime Report

A drive-by shooting in Norwalk on Wednesday afternoon left a man wounded, authorities said.

The gunfire was reported about 2:35 p.m. at Pioneer Boulevard and 163rd Street, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robin Limon said.

 Two men, both men in their 30s with suspected gang ties, were walking down the street when an attacker passed by in a white Dodge Caliber, Limon said.

Without uttering a word, the driver opened fire with a handgun, striking one of the victims in the leg, according to the lieutenant. The second victim escaped injury.

Deputies initially described the suspect as a Latino man in his 30s with black hair and tattoos on his neck. He was armed with a semi-automatic pistol.

Limon said the gunman was last seen driving south on Pioneer Blvd., toward the 91 Freeway.
