Boyle Heights shooting near Soto Street leaves man injured

Man shot near Soto and Charlotte streets


Boyle Heights  — A man in his 20s was shot early Saturday morning near the 10 Freeway,  police said.

Somebody walked up to the victim at about 2 a.m. near North Soto and Charlotte streets and shot him in the back and leg, said Lt. Michael Bautista. The unidentified man was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.

Police found spray cans used for graffitti near the area where the man was shot, but it’s unclear if the shooting was related to tagging. The street is next to the Soto Street off ramp along the westbound 10 Freeway. No further information was available.

Anyone with more information can call Hollenbeck station.

  1. No outrage from Defend Boyle Heights??

    • Pues no. It seems like that’s what they want in their neighborhood, don’t you dare change it and make it cleaner and better, cause then rents will go up and they’ll have to actually try to better themselves and get a profession to be able to keep up with everyone else. Liquor stores are better than art galleries, cheap clothing stores are better than coffe shops, cheap electronics stores with lights flashing and loud music are better than a clean sandwich shop. Don’t you dare buy an old victorian house there and restore it, remove the bars from the windows and the junk from the front yard!
