According to our source at the LAPD, it appears that a “known gang member” shot himself in the leg while sitting or standing next to a car outside of the Town House on Windward last night at around 11pm. His girlfriend took the gun and tossed it, then got chased down by the basketball courts and apprehended. The gun was then retrieved by the LAPD.
Our source says that the investigation is ongoing and there will likely be charges filed on the guy for criminal negligence for rolling around with the firearm and for the girlfriend possibly aiding a felony crime.
