A man was wounded Tuesday in what is believed to be a gang-related shooting in Boyle Heights.

The victim, who is about 30, was shot about 4:45 p.m. in the 2700 block of Wabash Avenue, according to Officer Sal Ramirez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

He was conscious and breathing when taken to a hospital, Ramirez said.

A man believed to be 18 to 20 years old, who was armed with a handgun and wearing a gray sweatshirt, fled the scene eastbound toward the Wabash Recreation Center, the officer said.
