Hollenbeck Shooting

By City News Service

(CNS) – A gunman in a car opened fire on a group of taggers in Lincoln Heights Saturday, but the bullets missed their mark, instead wounding two men in their 20s at a nearby taco stand.

The shooting happened around 1:45 a.m. near Broadway and Avenue 19, Los Angeles police Sgt. Peter Gamino of the Hollenbeck Station said.

One of the victims was struck in a leg, and the other was grazed in the back. They drove to County-USC Medical Center, Gamino said. Witnesses told police the shooter was in a brown car.
