Lt. Brian Fitch of the L.A. County Sheriff reported that Altadena deputies responded to a "shots fired" call at the 400 block of west Woodbury Road on Nov. 30, at about 11:30 PM. Deputies were unable to locate the source of the shots after canvassing the area.
However, about 20 minutes later, deputies answered a call of a male gunsot victim sitting in a parked vehicle along the 500 block of East Alameda Street. According to a release from the Altadena Sheriff Station, the victim had been shot once in the right side and once in the right hip, and there were several bullet holes on the passenger side of his vehicle. The victim was treated by paramedics and taken by ambulance to Huntington Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
The victim said he had been driving on Woodbury Road when he was shot by unknown persons driving an unknown type of vehicle, and was unable to provide a description of his assailants. Deputies were unable to come up with any more information, evidence, or witnesses after canvassing the area.
Earlier in the day, according to a story in the Pasadena Star-News, another man was found by Pasadena police about 12:30 AM at a bus stop at Lincoln Avenue and Montana Street. The report said the victim had a grazing gunshot wound to the face and would not cooperate with authorities.
