LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say three people killed within the span of an hour in the northern suburbs of Los Angeles were random victims of shootings that may have been carried out by the same attackers.

Sgt. Frank Preciado says witnesses spotted a tan or gold-colored SUV at two of the three crime scenes in the San Fernando Valley area Sunday morning.

In the first shooting, a family of five riding in a car to attend church was struck by gunfire at 5:50 a.m. in San Fernando. Preciado said a 20-year-old woman was killed. Four others were injured; one of them was hospitalized in grave condition.

About 40 minutes later, a man was fatally shot at a Sylmar park.

Then 15 minutes later and less than 5 miles away, a woman in her 50s was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head.
