An 18-year-old man was shot in the leg earlier this week near Silver Lake Boulevard and Parkman Avenue. The victim told police that a man shot him in the left thigh on Tuesday, May 28 at about 7:45 p.m., according to Lt. Wes Buhrmester of the Rampart Division.
“He was taken to [Kaiser Hospital on Sunset Boulevard] by a relative, where he was treated for a non-life threatening wound, “Burhmester said. “The victim offered no information as to motive or suspect description. Detectives will interview him at a later date in an attempt to obtain more information.”
News of the shooting surfaced on Tuesday when an Eastsider reader, in a comment to a story about a fatal Highland Park shooting that same day, posted information about the Silver Lake incident. But the Silver Lake shooting could not be confirmed on Wednesday morning when The Eastsider spoke to several Rampart officers about the incident.
