Apparently gang-related shooting reported in Monrovia

MONROVIA — A man was shot and wounded Thursday in a possibly gang-related attack in Monrovia, police said.
The shooting occurred about 9:15 p.m. at Magnolia Avenue and Genoa Street, Monrovia police Lt. Nels Ortlund said.
The victim, who was initially described only as a black man, was expected to survive, the lieutenant said.
The initial investigation indicated the shooter, described only as a Latino man, fired at the victim from inside a passing dark-colored, 4-door sedan, Ortlund.
The windows were heavily tinted and only partially rolled down, he added, so it was unclear if there was more than one person in the car.
“What appeared to be some gang-related threats” were shouted prior to the shooting, Ortlund said, though the specific gang-affiliation of the attacker was not available late Thursday.
The shooting occurred in the portion of Monrovia where a judge enacted a gang injunction last month against two feuding gangs, Monrovia Nuevo Varrio and the Du Roc Crips.

    So I guess that injunction wasn’t served on everyone or they think its a joke. I hope they catch the buggers that pulled the trigger and put an end to all of this before it escalates.
