There was no motiye known for the shooting, police siaid. Witnesses said that in what appeared to be a coordinated move, one gunman stood up in the crowd, gathered behind a recreation center in the Watts district, and began shooting at random. The audience panicked and began to flee, whereupon three other men opened fire, witnesses said. More than 20 shots were fired, police said, and then the gunmen, in what appeared to be part of the plan, threw their weapons to young boys who dashed away in the crowd. Witnesses said they saw two girls and a boy fall bleeding to the ground with arm and leg wounds, and then get up and escape, police said. Housing authority officers grappled with two suspects and held them for police. Delwin Washington, 21, and Aaron Washington, 18, not related, were held on charges of assault with deadly weapons.

The spokesman said the French minesweeper which had [been shadowing the frigate had not reappeared and French military aircraft had not made any more sweeps over the ship. Kirk told Parliament today the French government had been told New Zealand would hold Paris responsible for any interference with New Zealand ships on the high seas in the vicinity of Mururoa Atoll. Replying to questions, Kirk said Paris would also be held responsible for any injury to New Zealand citizens caused by French action. However, New Zealand had made it dear that the Otago would not be- drawn into any confrontation by the actions of any private protest vessels, he said.
