Masked Suspect Fires Shots in Montebello

By City News Service

A masked suspect fired shots at someone in Montebello, but the rounds struck nearby apartment buildings and not the intended target, police said.

The victim, a male whose age was not immediately available, said the suspected shooter, also a male, was crouched in an alley in the area of 125 Poplar Avenue and fired two shots at him about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Montebello police Lt. Mike Flores said.

The rounds struck apartment buildings in the immediate area, Flores said.

The suspect — who had a bandana over his face and was wearing all dark clothing — has not been found, Flores said.

No witnesses were found and no vehicle was seen leaving the location, he said.
