CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the fatal shooting of a man and a woman in a Carson neighborhood, where residents say they were mother and son.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Mike Barraza said Sunday the man and two women were sitting in a parked car when a sedan drove by and an unknown suspect opened fire.

Barraza says the two victims died at the scene Saturday night. The other woman was uninjured.

Neighbor Cedric Carpenter tells Los Angeles TV station KNBC (https://bit.ly/1n8yW0P) the victims were mother and son and that the second woman was the man’s grandmother.

They say the family had lived in the neighborhood for more than 20 years and their home was used as a music studio.

Law enforcement officials could not immediately confirm the victims’ relation.
