October 8, 2020



The LAPD is searching for a man who fired a gun into the boardwalk on Wednesday evening, hitting another man.

Several witnesses reported hearing shots fired about 6:40 p.m. in the Boardwalk area near Venice Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Dept. Capt. Brian Morrison said.

He added that the victim was apparently shot in a parking lot but was located about a block away suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

The unidentified victim, believed to be about 20 years old, was taken to a local hospital in critical but stable condition, Morrison said.

Shell casings and several vehicles with bullet holes were found in a nearby parking lot.

Investigators are asking local businesses if they have security video.

The suspect and victim were part of a group that got into a verbal altercation prior to the shooting, LAPD Officer Tony Im said.

Im described the suspect as a 19-year-old man. No further details were given.

The suspect may have fled the scene in a vehicle but no description was available.

Morrison said the area does get some gang activity but it was too early to tell if this shooting was gang related.
