Police officials said today that Monday’s shooting that left two people wounded was not a random act of violence.

Lt. Mark McDaniel of the Downey Police Department said the victims, who remain hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, were likely targeted.

Police dispatchers received several 911 calls at 4:06 p.m. Monday regarding a traffic collision on the 11500 block of Old River School Rd. involving a vehicle that crashed into a parked car before careening into an empty garage.

Officers discovered two men inside the vehicle suffering from gunshot wounds.

No suspects have been arrested. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Steve Aubuchon at (562) 904-2361 or Detective Paul Hernandez at (562) 904-2368.
