(Nov. 20, 2005) -- A man was shot and wounded on Saturday night Nov. 19 in the 1000 block of east Hill Street (near California Ave., b/w LB Blvd. and Orange Ave.)...and the shooter is on the loose as we post.
LBPD Public Information Officer Israel Ramirez says that at about 10:47 p.m., officers responded to the scene and found the victim shot in the leg. He was transported to a hospital.
The victim was apparently standing in front of the location when someone approached and fired at him. The suspect fled toward Lewis Street. No one is in custody as we post.
