Two men were wounded, one seriously, in a shooting in Hollywood Friday police said was related to domestic violence.

It appeared that the ex-husband of a woman at the residence had become involved in a dispute with her current boyfriend, said Lt. Richard Gabaldon of the LAPD's Hollywood Community Police Station.

One of the wounded men had a graze wound on his head, the other was shot three times, twice in the lower extremities and once in the stomach, Gabaldon said.

Both men were taken to a hospital for treatment and are both expected to survive their injuries, Gabaldon said.

The woman was not injured, but had been detained at the Hollywood station for questioning, Gabaldon said.
