November 11, 2021
Culver City police are looking for at least two men who allegedly shot, punched and kicked a bicyclist on National Boulevard last Thursday morning.
The shooting occurred on November 4 around 1:45 a.m. on the bike path on National Blvd. near Fay Avenue, according to the Culver City Police Department.
The victim told police he was riding his bicycle when "he heard a loud pop and felt pain on his chest," causing him to fall off his bicycle.
"The victim was then suddenly struck in the face by one of the suspects and then punched and kicked by one or two additional suspects, before they ran off on foot in an unknown direction," said CCPD in a press release.
The cyclist was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for a "possible gunshot or pellet gun wound, and other non-life-threatening injuries," said police. He is in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
The suspects are described by police as three Black males, approximately 30 years old, wearing dark colored clothing. Police noted that "it's possible that there were only two suspects involved in this criminal act."
Anyone with any information related to this crime is asked to contact Culver City Police Department Public Information Officer Assistant Chief Jason Sims at 310-253-6391 or the Watch Commander at 310-253-6202.
