UNIVERSAL CITY (CBS) — A motorist was shot in the head while driving through the Cahuenga Pass early Saturday morning.

The driver, in a white Cadillac Escalade, was able to get to a Mobil Station on Barham Boulevard and seek help.

Officials said the shooting occurred just after 3:30 a.m.

According to a Los Angeles Police Officer at the North Hollywood station, paramedics were able to take the man to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was listed in serious condition.

The victim was able to tell police that the shooter was likely in a black sport utility vehicle, possibly another Escalade or Chevy Suburban. But police said the victim gave several conflicting accounts and appeared to be in shock.

Police withheld the wounded man’s name but said he was believed to be thirty-something.

      You are assuming based on the type vehicle

        I am not assuming based on the vehicle. I am assuming based on behavior.

        It is always illegal aliens who act like barbarians.

        We need to get rid of them. It is costing too much and I’m tired of innocent people being killed by them.

      So law abiding citizens can protect themselves and their loved ones against criminals breaking into their homes. You think outlawing handguns will get them out of the hands of criminals? All it will do is not allow good people to protect themselves, you idiot.

    So criminals are not the only ones with guns.

  3. Pat says:

    When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

  4. Karen says:

    We need to deport the illegal aliens who think it is OK to shoot people.

    I’m not talking race. I’m talking about the shootings that happen all the time and most of the time, the shooters are illegal aliens.

    Get them the F out of our country.
