A source at LAPD informs us that shortly before 9pm a mid twenties white male was shot in the buttocks in the 1500 block of Pacific Avenue near Market. The shooter apparently pulled up next to the victim in a car driven by an accomplice and fired one shot. As of 11:15pm there are no suspects in custody.
LAPD says that officers are presently at the scene, but it is too early in the investigation to release any official information. The victim lost a lot of blood, but as the wound was to his buttocks, it is not life threatening and he is fully expected to recover. The victim was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
Update tomorrow when the LAPD releases more information.
