GARDENA (CBSLA.com) — A man who had just left a Gardena casino was shot in the hand early Wednesday after being attacked by at least two men who followed him to a nearby gas station.
The shooting was reported just before 4 a.m. at a gas station across the way from the Lucky Lady Casino, 1045 W. Rosecrans Ave.
The man had just left the casino with his winnings when police say at least two men followed him out of the parking lot and rear-ended him, to get him to park in a Chevron gas station and 7-Eleven convenience store.
Security video shows the man parking and waiting for the men to come out before a struggle ensues.
Police say the man shot four times and was struck in the hand and his head was grazed. He was taken to Harbor General Hospital, where he is in stable condition.
The robbery suspects took off in small gray or silver SUV with four doors. Both suspects were described as black men, between 25 and 30 years old, between 5-foot-11 and 6 feet. One man, who held a dark-colored semi-automatic handgun, had dreadlocks and wore a white T-shirt and dark jeans. The second wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and light-colored pants.
