Reputed Gang Member Shot 7 Times In South Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police are looking for carloads of attackers who shot a reputed gang member seven times.

Lt. Peter Casey tells City News Service that the man, who is in his 20s, was wounded Monday night in South Los Angeles when at least four gang members drove up in two cars, got out and opened fire before driving off.

The man was hit four times in the shoulder, once in each hand and once in the foot. He was hospitalized in stable condition. His name hasn’t been released.

Casey says it’s unclear whether the attackers were from a rival gang or the shooting involved a dispute within the same gang.

      the red pill or the blue pill?

  2. The Mad Man says:

    Someone is a lousy shot. I guess the shooter will not be initiated into the gang or was this just a practice run? The story is never clear about gang members. So I guess there will be retaliation and so the saga continues…

    And Los Angeles continues to glorify gang members. LA has got to be one of the ugliest cities in the country. NO SOUL, NO CLASS. They beat up a person watching a baseball game. They riot when their basket ball team wins and when it looses. And always it seem on the news its the same low life thugs that permiate most of Los Angeles. Sad, Sad, Sad.

    Excuse me!! So based on you theory there are no whites or Asians wasting OUR tax money. Ruining everything they touch. You must have the privilege of not seeing any of those trailer parks we hear so much about or have you?

  9. Chrissie says:

    Could it be the rape and pillage of their country by the Europeans? Good thing those Mexicans and African were there to build them for you.

  10. Mr T. says:

    What rock did you crawl from under if I’m not mistaken, Africans built this country with blood sweat and tears and more they have contribute more than you or your own family will ever do.

    Sorry for your sad life

    who do you think will pay the hospital bill ?
    no insurance and they never pay their bills.

    You only see what you wish to see
    There are more whites on assistance
    than persons of color
    Whites do commit crimes but are given
    lenient sentences

  19. Craig says:

    Give them an F for effort.No torso hits, 7 rounds, one in each hand and in the foot? Were they trying to crucify him with bullets?
