Liquor Store Shooting NA10055ks

Los Angeles:  A store clerk was shot and seriously wounded Saturday afternoon as he stood near the cash register he was working at.   

On January 30, 2010, at around 1 p.m., two suspects walked into a liquor store in the 13900 block of Van Nuys Boulevard.  One suspect removed a handgun from his sweatshirt and fired it at the clerk, hitting him in the upper torso.  After the shooting, the suspect and his accomplice fled on foot.

It is unclear what the motive for this shooting was.  The suspects made no attempt to take anything from the store.   Detectives are investigating the shooting as an attempt murder.

The two suspects are described as Hispanic males in their late teens to early twenties,
150-175 lbs.  Suspect #1, the shooter, was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, black beanie cap, black pants and prescription glasses.  Suspect #2 was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a black beanie cap.  It is unknown if the incident is gang related, but the victim is not associated with any gangs.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.  He was later reported in stable condition.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Mission Area Gang Detectives Jason Burcham or Pablo Rivera at 818-838-9932.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.   Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
