Drive-By Shooting Hospitalizes Teen-Ager

A teen-age boy was wounded Sunday in a drive-by shooting in North Hollywood, police said.

Witnesses said the boy was walking in the 7200 block of Tujunga Avenue near Sherman Way about 5:30 p.m. when he was hit by shots fired from a passing car, Sgt. Christopher Vasquez said. Detectives were uncertain as to whether the shooting was gang related, Vasquez said.

The victim, who was not identified by police, was taken to Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills. He was undergoing surgery late Sunday, a hospital spokeswoman said. The extent of his injuries was not immediately known, she said.

No arrests had been made, Vasquez said.
