SOUTH WHITTIER >> A man suffered a gunshot wound to his leg in a drive-by attack in South Whittier on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
The shooting took place about 12:45 p.m. in the rear alley of an apartment copmlex in the 10000 block of Carmentia Road, between Telegraph Road and Laurel Avenue, in the unincorporated county area, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Jose Navarez said.
Deputies responded to several 911 calls reporting a drive-by shooting and encountered the victim, described only as a man, wounded in the leg, the sergeant said. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and was expected to recover.
His attackers were described as two to three Latino men in a small, white car, Nevarez said.
The wounded man did not appear to be cooperating with investigators, he said. The motive was unclear, and no further details were available.
