PASADENA — A man showed up at a local hospital with a gunshot wound late Wednesday, but refused to cooperate with police investigating the shooting.
The wounded man, who is in his 30s, was dropped off at Huntington Hospital about 8:45 p.m., Pasadena police Lt. Rick Aversano said. He had been shot in the hip and groin.
“The victim was uncooperative, and would not provide any info as to who shot him or where the incident occurred,” the lieutenant said. He was believed to have ties to a local street gang.
Officers had responded about 20 minutes earlier to a report of “shots fired” in the area of Raymond Avenue and Tremont Street, but found no evidence of a shooting, Aversano said. Police were looking into whether the incidents were related.
