LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say three children at a Los Angeles taco stand were injured in a drive-by shooting.

LAPD spokeswoman Officer Liliana Preciado says the shots were fired on the city's south side from a car shortly after 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Lt. John Jenal tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1OvG5nk) that a boy and a girl, both 13, were shot and taken to a hospital, where they are in stable condition.

The Times reports that a 10-year-old boy was hit by shrapnel, but he was not hospitalized.

Police tell the Times that the shooting was probably related to gang activity in the neighborhood. A man was seen running from the shooting scene, and police say they believe he was the intended target.

No arrests have been made.
