ECHO PARK –– One man was shot Friday night after a group was thrown out of an Echo Park bar on Sunset Boulevard, police said.
The shooting took place at Little Joy at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Portia Street after one of the suspects who had been thrown out of the bar returned and opened fire, said Lt. Richard Parks with the LAPD Northeast Division. The victim was shot in the leg, and his injury is not believed to be life threatening, he said.
Police dogs were used to help apprehend three suspects, two males and a female, at about 4 a.m. on Saturday near Glendale Boulevard and Aaron Street after police sealed off the area. A police helicopter circled overhead for several hours during the search.
One of the male suspects will be booked on attempted murder, Parks said. It’s not clear if the other two will face charges, he said.
