TL:DR; ๐Ÿ’ซ Three daredevil teenagers ended up in cuffs after a horrifying gang-related shooting that rattled a mother and her 1-year-old kid, while they were just kickin’ it at a Monster Burger joint in South Los Angeles. The cops say it’s a case of mistaken identity, with the youngsters thinking they were gunning for rivals.


It was a typical day on June 5, 2023, and two young mothers were chilling in their car, hanging out at the Monster Burger stand, at the corner of 81st Street and Avalon Boulevard, just as the clock struck 5:30 p.m. Along for the ride were their little ones โ€“ an 8-month-old and a 1-year-old โ€“ all snug and secure in their car seats. ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง

Suddenly, out of nowhere, a gray Kia sedan, flashing Texas plates, rolled into the parking lot. Three teenagers with something deadly on their minds emerged, packing heat. And guess what? Those guns werenโ€™t there to cut in line for some burgers. ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ”ซ

With chilling precision, they walked up to the women’s car and let off a barrage of bullets, striking one woman in the leg and the 1-year-old girl in the foot. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ
