Six people were wounded in a Los Angeles shooting on Friday after two gunmen fired shots into a grocery store as the city ended a crime-filled year with one last fit of senseless violence.
Two unidentified shooters fired into Superior Grocers around 4pm on Friday after driving up to the store and getting out of their vehicle, police said.
The shooting at 102nd Street and Avalon Boulevard in Green Meadows allegedly occurred after the two men returned to the store with guns following an argument with another person inside the store, Los Angeles Police Department Captain Stacy Spell said.
The two gunmen targeted only one person, but five others were injured in the process, leaving two in critical condition and two others in serious condition, according to Margaret Stewart, an LAPD spokesperson.

DailyMail.com reached out to the LAPD for comment.
The shooting caps a year in which Los Angeles was ravaged by crime, including flash mobs who ransacked high-end stores in what officials called organized attacks.
In the week between Christmas and New Year’s, the city had 118 vehicle thefts, nearly 70 robberies and almost 100 assaults, according to the LAPD.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has blamed woke LA County District Attorney George Gascón, as well as his San Francisco counterpart Chesa Boudin, for the state’s rampant crime
‘I have a 92 percent increase in homicides in two years. I have a 16 percent increase in grand-theft auto. I have a ‘zero bail’ schedule, which means every person I catch with a stolen car gets a ticket, walks out of jail…in fact, they’re out of jail before [deputies are] even done writing the report,’ Villanueva said.
The sheriff added that Boudin turned against police as part of his political agenda, but doesn’t realize how harmful it is for the community.
‘And it’s people…They live in this ‘woke palace’ where they’re not affected by the policies, but the average person IS impacted by them.’
