Man shot in unincorporated Covina

COVINA — A man was shot and wounded Saturday afternoon on a residential street in an unincorporated county area near Covina, authorities said.
The incident was reported about 1:40 p.m. in the 4000 block of Yaleton Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Bolanos said.
The victim, a 39-year-old local man, suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his leg, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Craig Boyett said.
A neighbor reported hearing a gunshot and finding a wounded man in a nearby garage, Bolanos said.
The victim was taken to an area hospital by a private vehicle, the sergeant said.
Witnesses gave conflicting accounts of the attacker’s description, Boyett said.
Officials searched the area with the help of a helicopter and canvassed the area for witnesses, Bolanos said, but the shooter was not found.
A motive in the shooting was not immediately clear, Boyett said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s San Dimas station.
