Los Angeles Times - - California - — Carla Rivera

Los An­ge­les po­lice were search­ing Sun­day for sus­pects in a shoot­ing in which two broth­ers were killed and a third man was wounded.

Jose Martinez, 24, and Sa­muel Martinez, 20, were killed about 12:50 a.m. Satur­day in the 2900 block of Di­vi­sion Street, near San Fer­nando Road. Both sus­tained sin­gle wounds and died at the scene.

Marvin Gon­za­lez, 19, also was shot and was in crit­i­cal con­di­tion at a lo­cal hos­pi­tal.

The men were head­ing to a liquor store when they were ap­proached by sev­eral sus­pects who asked about their gang af­fil­i­a­tions. Ap­par­ently not sat­is­fied with the an­swers, the sus­pects opened fire, said Sgt. Gre­gory Whor­tan of the Los An­ge­les Po­lice Depart­ment. Po­lice said the vic­tims were not gang mem­bers.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call North­east Di­vi­sion homi­cide de­tec­tives at (213) 847-4261.
