The suspects involved in a car-to-car shooting on Sunset Boulevard near Marion Street Thursday afternoon have not been apprehended contrary to other news reports. Detectives working on the shooting at the eastern edge of Echo Park and Angeleno Heights said that no one is in custody as of this morning, according to Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the LAPD Rampart Division. The shooting left two persons injured, with one victim shot in the wrist and the other in the head.
“The head wound was not life-threatening, as it hit the victim but did not penetrate his skull,” Buhrmester said. “The investigation continues, and gang affiliation appears to be the motive. It was not believed to be a random act.”
