LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A man is under arrest and in the hospital Tuesday after he was shot by a security guard for attempting to rob a marijuana dispensary in the Arlington Heights area of Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old suspect was shot on the sidewalk at around 11 a.m. after things reportedly got physical inside a store near the corner of Pico and Crenshaw boulevards.

Detectives say they did not fire a weapon on the robber.

According to business owners in the area, the dispensary opened up just a few months ago.

“We don’t feel safe since they opened,” one local business owner told CBS2’s Jeff Nguyen.

Authorities are working to get copies of security video footage to get a better idea of what led up to the shooting.
