LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two men identified by police as a gang member and a suspected associate were arrested Wednesday in a shooting that critically wounded a 6-year-old boy.

The boy and his family were on their way to buy a car Tuesday when two men flashed gang signs at them and one of them shot at their sport utility vehicle, hitting the child in the head.

The family is black, the suspects are Hispanic and police say a Hispanic gang has targeted black victims in the area before. Authorities did not know whether the latest attack was racially motivated.
