UAW Hall

Look for the Union label.


Police say two men were shot and injured outside a union hall at 136th and Torrence following a United Auto Workers 551 leadership election.

Witnesses say a small group of union members from the nearby Ford Plant was arguing about the election and its results, including one person who had a gun. Police say the two me, ages 40 and 44, were shot in the parking lot shortly before 10 p.m.

The 40-year-old was shot in the left leg and the 44-year-old was shot in the right leg. Both men are expected to be okay.

An employee says the Ford plant was briefly on lockdown as police searched for the shooter.

“The police was out in the plant and put us on a lockdown. Man, I was just shocked. I mean, they were just searching the area. Yeah, they were looking around the area with their dogs and everything… it’s just crazy,” says Carlex Grier.

Police say the two victims did know the shooter, but the gunman remains at large.
