A drive-by shooting near Valleydale Elementary School left one person wounded in Azusa Monday night.

Authorities believe the shooting, which occurred on the 5500 block of North Lark Ellen Avenue at about 9:30 p.m., was gang-related. The 20-year-old man shot was standing in front of a house when two men pulled up and opened fire, then drove away in an unknown direction, Lt. Elisabeth Sachs of the San Dimas Station said.

The wounded man was hospitalized as of Tuesday morning with a gunshot wound to the leg, authorities said. His injury is non-life threatening, Sachs said.

A detailed description of the shooter or shooters was not immediately available.
