Two Los Angeles gangs have entered into a contest betting on who can kill 100 people in 100 days.
Social media users have warned under the hashtag ‘100Days100Nights’ that between Western and Normandie Avenues, innocent people could be risking their lives during the 100 days, according to The Daily Beast.
The terrifying bet was allegedly made last week following the death of Rollin 100 gang member ‘KP’.
The posts on Instagram and Twitter have been taken seriously by police and led LAPD officials to deploy more officers to the area, police sources told the Daily Beast.
A rise in violent crimes occurred over the weekend as one man was shot dead and 12 were wounded after more than six shootings in the 77th Street district – which has some of the city’s most violent neighborhoods, the Los Angeles Times reported.
On Thursday night, a woman and two young boys aged four and 11, were wounded after the gunman, who is still at large, approached their car and opened fire on the 2000 block of West 99th Street.
Anthony Alonzo Cudger, 47, was shot and killed on Saturday after a suspect drove to his car and opened a round of fire at the intersection of 81st and Hoover streets before leaving the scene, according to the Daily Beast.
Police are still investigating a motive, however sources believe that an argument that occurred at a gang member’s funeral had to do with it.

Less than an hour following that shooting, a man in his 40s was shot while in his car at the intersection of 75th and Figueroa Streets – only seven blocks away. The man was able to drive to the hospital but the suspect is still at large.
A man in his 20s was found by authorities shot in the stomach at Hyde Park Boulevard and Brynhurst Avenue and was rushed to the hospital.
Less than four miles away and around half an hour later, one woman and two men were shot while walking down 47th Street and Budlong Avenue. They were all taken to hospital, where one is in critical condition.
On Saturday night, police from LAPD’s 77th Division issued a tactical alert – spanning from Vernon Avenue to Manchester Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard to Figueroa and San Pedro streets – following the string of gang shootings that occurred over five hours, according to ABC7.
No shootings were reported in the 77th district on Sunday, LAPD Deputy Chief Bill Scott said.
