    Second Night of Gunfire In Sleepy Hollow; Car Drives By; Shots Ring Out; Man Is Wounded & Transported To Hospital

    (August 30, 2004, updated from initial post) -- has confirmed that gunfire occurred for a second night in a row in the "Sleepy Hollow" neighborhood west of LB Blvd. and south of Del Amo Blvd.

    Updating a story first reported by, LBPD Public Information Officer Sgt. David Cannan says that at roughly 9:26 p.m. on Sunday August 29, a shooting occurred in the 4600 block of Rio Ave. The victim was standing outside when shots rang out from a small, light colored vehicle. He was transported to a hospital in stable condition.

    As first reported by, on Saturday Aug. 28 at roughly 8:00 p.m., at least 25 gunshot rounds were fired in the same vicinity, hitting homes (LBPD says at least three, Councilwoman Rae Gabelich says five), scarring trees and telephone poles...and in two cases sending bullets into residences. LBPD said a fragment from one bullet struck a nine year old child in the foot (not breaking the skin but leaving a red mark). has separately learned that a bullet also entered another residence, leaving a hole (described as roughly four to six inches in diameter) in the wall of a child's room.

    Sgt. Cannan says LBPD believes the latest shooting may be gang related. LBPD has asked anyone with information about these events to contact LBPD's Gang Unit at (562) 570-7370.
