I forgot to post a link to this story Monday, and it’s pretty interesting. Apparently there was a drive-by shooting in the Angeles National Forest Sunday. One man was hurt. The shooter escaped. Here’s the brief that ran in the Pasadena Star-News:
LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE – A man was shot and wounded in an apparently gang-related attack in the Angeles National Forest north of La Canada Flintridge Sunday, authorities said.
The shooting occurred about 4:30 a.m. on Angeles Crest Highway north of Foothill Boulevard, at mile marker 27.37, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Angela Shepherd said.
The victim, a 21-year-old Highland Park man, was standing at a turnout when a Silver sedan containing a Latino man and woman in their early 20s passed by, Shepherd said.
Several shots were fired from inside the car, striking the victim once in the lower back, she said. He was hospitalized with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
No further details were available.
