Violent crimes are always a tragedy and shocking. Whether your family is involved in a violent crime as victims or the accused, it can be the worst nightmare you can imagine. A situation in Venice Beach created the worst possible run up to a high school graduation. A bloody shooting involving two young men shocked Venice Beach residents and ruined the graduation of Venice Senior High School. Three teens were hit around 4:10 PM and two of them died, both of them seniors at Venice Senior High School. The third victim will reportedly recover. The event took place near the campus where the three were going to attend a girls' softball game to celebrate their graduation. According to the police, the shooting victims were spending time at the field when a yet unidentified assailant walked up and fired around nine shots from a 9MM handgun. Girls playing at the softball game hit the ground when they heard the gunshots. A female coach at the game gave the first teen to die CPR for up to fifteen minutes and wrapped her jacket around the non-fatal victim's leg. Police are treating the shooting as "gang related."
Venice Beach Senior High School is one of the most iconic high schools in America, as it was the set of the hit film "Grease" and the classroom setting for "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears'. It was also the backdrop for "American History X" according to the L.A. Daily News.
