LINCOLN HEIGHTS — Police are searching for two suspects who shot at a security guard after he confronted them for tagging early this morning in Lincoln Heights.
The two men were tagging a wall at a parking lot near the intersection of Avenue 18 and Pasadena Avenue when the security guard confronted them shortly before 6 a.m., said Sgt. Washington with LAPD’s Hollenbeck Division.
After exchanging a few words, the suspects fired two or three shots at the security guard as he drove off, Washington said. The bullets missed the security guard, who was not injured.
The suspects, two male Latinos, remain at large. The investigation is ongoing.
