LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies have detained five people after two shootings and a pursuit.

The Sheriff’s Department says deputies responding to a gunshot call at 12:31 a.m. Friday found a person fatally shot in East Los Angeles.

A green sedan was identified as possibly involved and a short time later there was another shooting in the area involving a green sedan.

Deputies spotted a green car and gave chase. The department says the pursuit went south on Interstate 5, where the suspects discarded a gun, then exited the freeway and struck a median that blew out a tire. The car got back on Interstate 5 and finally stopped in suburban Downey.

The detained suspects are identified only as two females and two males. Two are juveniles.
