WHITTIER — A man showed up at a hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg, but did not appear to be cooperating with police in regard to how he received the wound, authorities said.
Officials received word that a man had arrived at Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital with a small-caliber gunshot wound to his leg just before noon, Whittier police Lt. Randy Inman said.
The wounded man, who was in his late 20s, did not want to make a report, did not fully cooperate with investigators, Inman said.
He reluctantly told police he was shot in the early-morning hours on Colima Road, north of Mar Vista Street, the lieutenant said.
The victim said he only went the hospital later in the day after the wound appeared to worsen, police added.
Further details were not available.
