Tagger Shot in Boyle Heights

By City News Service

A 26-year-old man was shot in the back while spray-painting graffiti on the wall of a Boyle Heights apartment building, a police sergeant said Sunday.

The shooting occurred just after 9 p.m. Saturday at Michigan Avenue and Soto Street, said Sgt. John Porras of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Station.

“The victim was shot in the back while tagging the wall with spray paint. He was in critical but stable condition after surgery,” Porras said. “We don’t have suspect information because the victim refused to provide details.”
