  1. Blvd sentl: guess u did not ck with police on anything. There is a description of the shooters n their car. Also don’t think the young man made it. But how would I know that when ur story is 1/2 assed!! Really

  2. Hello Amy,
    The information in the story is from an officer on the scene at 10:15 p.m. We waited that long and would have waited longer if needed to get the information directly from LAPD. We were well aware of reports on social media that the victim had died, we were also well aware of reports describing the vehicle. The officer told us that the reports were inaccurate. The victim was not dead at the scene, was transported to the hospital and was in surgery. The LAFD also confirmed to us that the victim was transported, which means that he was not dead.

    1. Never said the victim died on the scene. He was taken 2 e.r. n surgery. But did not make it. But channel 11 news did get a description from police on car and possible shooters. Duke it out with channel 11 news. They r the 1s that posted. Fake news..possible.. Btw what happened 2 signal at fwy exit on Colorado. Fake news also.
