LANCASTER – Two men are in stable condition after being shot in Lancaster Sunday night, authorities said Monday.
Around 10:30 p.m. deputies responded to the 3700 block of West Avenue K-11 regarding an assault with a deadly weapon call, said Sgt. Gregory Minster of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“At the location we found two male black adults who had been shot,” Minster said.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting were still being investigated Monday, and detectives were not releasing much information.
“Both victims were transported to Antelope Valley Hospital and they were listed in stable condition,” said Lt. Paul Pfrehm of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station, adding that the names and ages of the victims were not being released.
No suspects were in custody as of Monday morning, Pfrehm said.
“No suspect was identified, but one occupant of an unknown vehicle was seen displaying a handgun,” Pfrehm said. “It’s still being investigated and we don’t know if [the shooting] was gang-related.”
A neighbor who asked not to be identified told The AV Times that he heard at least five gunshots followed by a “woman screaming at the top of her lungs” for help.
“Two black males were shot, one got shot in the foot one time and the other male was shot three times in multiple spots. They were brothers,” the neighbor said.
Sheriff’s detectives would not confirm this information Monday.
