Man suspected of shooting roommate in Norwalk

NORWALK — Deputies jailed a Norwalk man Friday after he shot his roommate during an argument, authorities said.
The name of the suspect, a man estimated to be in his late 20s, was not available late Friday as he had not yet been booked into jail, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Marc Boskovich said.
The incident took place about 6:30 p.m. at a house in the 13000 block of Rosecrans Avenue, the sergeant said.
The suspect got into an argument with his roommate — a man of about the same age — and shot him once in the leg with a small-caliber revolver, Boskovich said.
It was not clear Friday what the argument was about.
The wounded man, who fled the home after the shooting, was hospitalized with a wound that did not appear to be life-threatening, he said.
Deputies arrested the alleged shooter in front of his house, he added.
