GLENDALE : 2 Men Wounded in Drive-by Shooting
Two men were injured in a drive-by shooting in a west Glendale neighborhood, but officers had to track down the victims before they could be sent to hospitals for treatment, police said.
Witnesses told police the men, ages 19 and 24, parked their car in the 1600 block of Lake Street at about 12:15 a.m. Sunday. Two other men in a light-colored Buick Monte Carlo pulled up alongside them. One got out and began yelling, waving his arms and brandishing a handgun.
Several witnesses reported hearing three or four shots and seeing the body of one of the victims in the street. But officers arriving at the scene found only a pool of blood in the street in front of Franklin Elementary School.
Witnesses said the downed man had been pulled back into his car and was driven away, according to a police report.
One witness jotted down the victims’ license plate number and police were able to trace the car to a nearby apartment building. The 19-year-old man suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center for treatment. The 24-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to his right shoulder and was taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank.
