UPDATED: Man struck in head in early-morning drive-by shooting in Norwalk

NORWALK — A man was lucky to be not only alive, but seemingly avoid serious injury after being struck in the head in a drive-by shooting early Saturday, authorities said.
The shooting took place about 8 a.m. on Lowemont Street near Elaine Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Cynthia McDaniel said.
The victim was described as a man in his late-20s.
“He’s lucky to be alive,” Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Steven Kumasharo said.
A bullet struck the man in the head, but traveled along his skull and exited without penetrating, officials said.
He was conscious and “very stable” when taken to a hospital for treatment, the captain said.
The shots came from a passing vehicle occupied by four male attackers, McDaniel said. No further description was available.
