LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Only in L.A. could a movie shoot help an actual shooting victim.
A Good Samaritan found a man who had been shot man in the Arts District in the area of 6th and Mateo streets Wednesday. He tried to take the wounded man to a hospital, but ended up asking an off-duty officer – who was working at a movie shoot nearby – for help.
“Some guy’s there bleeding to death, we cover his wounds, he’s got a shot in his arm, a shot in his torso, and we’re like, you know, ‘we’re gonna get you help,’” Good Samaritan Angel Ruiz said.
The officer called for an ambulance, and took the man to a hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
The shooter has not been caught.
