ECHO PARK — An argument between two transients ended in a shooting this morning, with one man suffering a gunshot in the leg, police said.
The shooting reported at 8:18 a.m. took place on Reservoir Street near a Glendale Boulevard Burger King, where workers and patrons heard a single gun shot followed by screaming. The victim, who was a regular customer, was seen bleeding in the street near the restaurant drive-through window, according to employees. The man suffered a “non-life threatening injury” and is recovering in a hospital, said LAPD Sgt. Frank Gonzalez.
“The shooting earlier today involved two local transients,” said Gonzalez via email. “They were involved in an argument this morning.”
The suspect was seen fleeing on foot northbound on Alvarado and remains at large.
