One man was left in critical condition after being shot this afternoon in a 7-Eleven parking lot in Echo Park, the second shooting this weekend that has resulted in injuries. Today’s shooting took place at about noon at Sunset Boulevard and Rosemont Street, said LAPD officer Joseph Sanchez. The reason for the shooting was not known but it was not related to any of the shops in the corner shopping center. Today’s shooting comes only about 24 hours after one man was shot during an apparent gun battle near Echo Park Lake that sent residents scrambling for cover.
* Update @ 9:05 P.M.: Sgt. Sanchez said today’s shooting does not appear to be gang related based on preliminary information.
