After reports of shots Friday night and discovery of a victim in his car, Altadena Sheriff’s Deputy personnel were unable to obtain further information or evidence about the incident, Lieutenant Brian Fitch reported in a statement Saturday.
At about 11:30 p.m. Friday, “deputy personnel from Altadena Sheriff’s Station responded to a ‘shots fired’ call at 400 E. Woodbury Road. Upon arrival, deputies canvassed the area but were unable to locate the source of the shots,” according to the statement.
Fitch describes the rest of Friday night’s events and findings in the release:
Approximately, 20 minutes later, Altadena Station received a call of a male gunshot victim sitting in a parked vehicle along the 500 block of East Alameda Street, Altadena. Deputy personnel discovered the victim seated in his vehicle. The victim’s vehicle had several bullet holes on the passenger side and the victim had been shot twice, once in the right side and once in the right hip. The victim was treated by Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics at the scene. He was then transported via ambulance to Huntington Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. The victim was unable to provide a description of his assailant(s), only that he had been driving on Woodbury Road when he was shot by person(s) unknown driving an unknown type vehicle.
"Pasadena police officers discovered a gunshot victim about 12:30 a.m. Friday just around the corner and across the city border at Lincoln Avenue and Montana Street," Pasadena police Sgt. Kate Favara told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “A man in his 20s was found sitting at a bus stop with a grazing gunshot wound to his face, the sergeant said. The wounded man did not cooperate with investigators.”
