July 21, 2011 11:16 AM

WILMINGTON (CBS) — Authorities say gang members opened fire, wounding two people, at an anti-gang program at Wilmington Recreation Center early Thursday morning.

About 30-people [sic] were walking away from the Summer Night Lights program at 325 Neptune Avenue just after midnight when a man in a dark car opened fire on the recreation center.

A 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl were wounded and taken to Harbor-UCLA
Medical Center…

The Summer Night Lights program was designed to reduce violence during the summer by keeping public parks open for gang-free activity, free food and programs.

Thursday’s shooting is the second at a Summer Night Lights event in as many weeks….
