Sheriff’s and Los Angeles police officials have surrounded a home in North Hollywood in search of a man wanted for shooting a security guard at a Pico Rivera night club with a shotgun early Thursday.
The shooting took place about 4 a.m. at the El Rodeo Night Club on Washington Boulevard, just west of Rosemead Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Smith said.
The suspect, a 20-year-old man, had been kicked out of the night club several hours before and returned with a shotgun, Smith said.
He opened fire on a security guard, who was struck in the hand and hip with shotgun pellets, the lieutenant said.
With the help of Los Angeles police, officials tracked the suspect to his home in the 7700 block of Beck Avenue in North Hollywood Thursday morning, Smith said.
Authorities surrounded the home and cautiously prepared to attempt an arrest shortly before 10 a.m., he said.
