Shooting reported in Baldwin Park

BALDWIN PARK — A man was shot and wounded Saturday afternoon in a residential neighborhood, police said.

A gunman inside the car, whose description was not available, asked the victim where he was from — a common gang challenge — before opening fire, police said.
The victim was struck in the upper back and was hospitalized with what was believed to be a minor gunshot wound, Kosaka said.
A description of the car used in the shooting was not available, the sergeant added. The victim was not cooperating with investigators.
