Man Is Shot/Wounded In Broad Daylight 100 block W. Willow (CD 6/Saro) Strip Mall
|(July 22, 2021) -- A man was shot/wounded in broad daylight Wednesday (July 21) in a strip mall in the 100 block of W. Willow St. near Pine Ave. (CD 6/Saro.)
LBPD Public Information Officer Brandon Fahey tells LBREPORT that on 7/21/21 at about 3:06 p.m., officers were sent to the 100 block of E. Willow Street regarding a person-hit shooting. While en route, officers were advised that a man (adult) victim had taken himself to a local hospital with a gunshot wound where he was in critical but stable condition.
Due to the victimís medical condition, he wasn't able to provide a statement to officers regarding the incident.
Officers found evidence, including casings, indicating a shooting had occurred.
For now, no suspect information is available, and while the incident is still under investigation, detectives believe the motive for the shooting is gang-related.
LBPD adds that its investigation is ongoing.
Councilwoman Saro, whose CD 6 is the second highest citywide in shootings since Jan. 1, has opposed restoring funding to LBPD's former field anti-gang unit since she was a candidate in the 2020 election cycle. She has made no motions to restoring its 22 officers (20 officers+ 2 sergeants) since taking office.
On July 20, 2021, Councilwoman Saro voted with seven other Council incumbents (Austin absent) to spend roughly $8.6 million for a Mayor/?Management "Safety Recovery Plan" that doesn't restore any of roughly 230 erased/formerly budgeted LB police officers.
