L.A’s 49th Street Massacre may not have been about race

Apr 25, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Three Latinos, including a child, were killed in a gang-style attack. The suspects, now on trial, are black. But the motivation is not believed to be racial.

On a summer afternoon nearly four years ago, two men carrying AK-47 assault rifles climbed out of a dark red sedan on a quiet South Los Angeles street and opened fire. One gunman shot a 10-year-old boy riding a bicycle, then stood over the child and continued firing at point-blank range. Three people, including the boy, were killed.
