Shooting Leaves Man in Critical Condition

Los Angeles: A 20-year-old Los Angeles man was seriously injured following a shooting in front of a Venice liquor store.

On July 7, 2007, at around 6:00 p.m., the victim was leaving the Lincoln Liquor Locker at Lincoln Boulevard and Zanja Street. Two suspects confronted him and his friends.

We want them to know that they can call us and remain completely anonymous."
