Police: Gang related shooting leaves 1 injured

Police are looking for the suspect involved in a gang related shooting that took place on Wednesday, Oct. 14, around 12:30 a.m. a the corner of Sawtelle and Venice Blvd.

 

According to the Los Angeles Police Department,  the suspect and victim were involved in an altercation when the suspect shot the victim multiple times.

 

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to survive, according to police.

 

The shooting is said to be gang-related and both suspect and the victim are said to be homeless, according to police.

 

The shooting took place near the 405 Underpass. An injunction issued in May by U.S. District Judge David O. Carter, requires city, county and homelessness officials to provide space in shelters or alternative housing for the estimated 6,000 to 7,000 county residents living near freeway overpasses, underpasses and ramps, including the 405. It’s still unclear if or when housing people who dwell under the 405 will occur.
