Gunman Wounds 2 In Santa Monica Alley, Flees

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) -- Santa Monica police say two men have been shot and wounded in an alley not far from the college where a gunman was killed last week after a deadly rampage.

However, Sgt. Richard Lewis says the attacks aren't connected.

Lewis says the victims were in an alley at about 8:15 a.m. Tuesday when a man walked up, shot them each several times, then ran to a car and fled.

The men were hospitalized for surgery. There's no word on their conditions or a motive for the shooting.

Lewis says the neighborhood has had past gang problems but it's been quiet for a long time.

The alley is a quarter-mile from Santa Monica College, where police killed John Zawahri after he fatally shot five people on Friday.
