Second Shooting

Officers were called at 9:55PM to Anaheim Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Cambodia Town regarding a shooting that happened at a gas station.

“Officers arrived and learned that two adult males were involved in a verbal dispute, which escalated into one subject shooting at the other,” Pratt said.

The victim was struck in his upper body and transported to a local hospital with what appeared to be a non-life threatening injury, she said.

The suspect, who fled the scene in a vehicle, was found by police near 20th Street and Magnolia Avenue in the South Wrigley district after police matched the suspect vehicle’s description.

Police conducted a traffic stop and took the suspect into custody without incident. The suspect, identified as a 29-year-old San Pedro man, was booked for attempted murder.

The gun was recovered at the scene.
