A suspected gang member was shot Monday after a minor car crash. Rival gang members in Los Angeles shot the victim in the thigh. Authorities say the incident may have been related to a gang shooting.

The victim, who hasn’t been identified by authorities, was involved in a minor car accident before being shot. The accident occurred at 49th St. and Vermont Ave, said Sgt. Steve Vera of LAPD’s 77th Division.

After the minor car crash, the victim got out of his car and was then posted by rival gang members. They then opened fire, Vera said.

Authorities don’t know how many shots were fired or how many gunman were involved, Vera added. There were no other victims involved in the incident.

The victim was transported to an area hospital with stable vital signs.

The car crash and gang shooting are still under investigation said officials. Authorities haven’t released a description of the victim or suspects involved in the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
