2 Shot, 1 Critically, Outside Nail Salon Near Beverly Hills

WEST LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Investigators are searching for the shooter who injured two people outside a nail salon, one critically, in the Pico-Robertson area Monday morning.

Police officers responding to a report of a shooting arrived to find a man badly hurt and a woman shot in the leg outside a business in the 1500 block of La Cienega, near Beverly Hills, Officer Sara Faden of LAPD Media Relations said.

A woman and a thin man wearing a vest were seen running away, Faden said.

The woman with the leg wound was taken Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The man, who was shot in the upper body, was listed in critical condition. Both were in their 20s. Police would not release their identities.

Police did not say if the victims were robbed, or what may have motivated the attack.

  • A in LA

    Time of day? Was it closer to 5am or 10am? Which corner? Which side of street?

    How about race of attackers?

    A friend of mine was sent to the hospital less than 10 days ago slightly further south on La Cienega.

    Really bad reporting. SHAMEFUL that so little information to protect citizens from criminals is given.

    It’s called being P.C.

    When they dont give a description, it’s obvious what their race is.

    Open reporting happens, because the incident is under investigation, and the next of kin have not been notified.

    i heard the shots and went outside..my neighbor helped the injured girl. I didn’t even hear anything on the news. But if it were in a different neighborhood?!! Maybe I missed it

    I heard the shots as well. The nail salon is located on the east side of La Cienega Boulevard, at the corner of La Cienega and Horner Street, and I heard the shots around 10:35 or 10:40am. I also saw what I believe may have been the man and woman running away described in the article. I do not know if they were the attackers or bystanders, but the man was African American with very dark skin, and the woman had lighter skin but may have also been African American. They were running on opposite sides of the street (Horner Street); he ran very fast while she was not running quite as fast.
