A Jewish man became the victim of a drive-by shooting Wednesday morning in Los Angeles shortly after leaving shul.
The Los Angeles Scoop reported that the man was shot at around 9:56 am PT near Cashio and Shenandoah in Pico-Robertson, an area of Los Angeles densely populated with Orthodox Jews.
The Magen Am private security service reportedly had a trainee at the scene when the shooting occurred, and he contacted police.
According to reports, the assailant – believed to be an Asian male with gray hair and a goatee – drove a gray Honda, possibly a Civic – towards his victim and fired 2 shots. The victim was grazed by one of the bullets and taken to a hospital for treatment before being released.
The suspect is not in custody at this time and was last seen driving southbound on Shenandoah.
The shooter’s motive is currently unknown.
