Police Seek Gunmen Who Shot El Sereno Cyclist

Detectives released surveillance video footage Wednesday in hopes of tracking down two suspects wanted for a non-fatal, possibly gang-related shooting attack on a bicyclist in El Sereno.

The man was riding his bike in the 5200 bock of Templeton Street at 5:30 p.m. on June 30 when two suspects in a tan Toyota 4Runner passed him, stopped, then got out of the SUV and fired numerous shots, according to investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Division.

The bicyclist, whose name was withheld, was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor wounds, then released, according to police.

The shooting may be gang-related, and detectives hope that someone will see the video and recognize the suspects. Anyone with information should all Detective Donna Cornejo at (323) 224-0104. Surveillance video is available at http://www.lapdonline.org/
