A man died early Friday morning in a shooting in the unincorporated Florence-Firestone area that also left a woman hospitalized with a gunshot wound.

Deputies responded at 1:47 a.m. to East 64th Street and Wilmington Avenue, where they discovered the victims, who were taken to a hospital, according to Deputy Morgan Arteaga of the Sheriffs Information Bureau.

The 35-year-old man died at the hospital, and the 48-year-old woman was hospitalized in stable condition. Their names were not released.

“The victims are believed to have been standing outside of a motor home parked at the location at the time of the shooting,” Deputy Grace Medrano said in a statement. “It is unknown if they lived in the motor home.”

At least one male suspect was seen running from the scene, Medrano said. No further description was available.

Anyone with information about the crime was asked to contact the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
