Another Shooting in Venice Police Hunting for Suspect

Police are looking for a gunman tonight after another shooting in Venice.

According to Officer Tony Im of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Division, the shooting occurred shortly after 9:50 p.m.

A 20-year-old man is in hospital. Police found him conscious and bleeding outside Surfside Bar and Grill at 23 Windward Ave, close to where just last week a man was shot multiple times in the chest.

Witnesses said two men accompanied by a woman confronted a group of people in a public parking lot near 29 Windward Avenue. One of the suspects armed with a semi-automatic pistol fired at least one round at the group, wounding an 18-year-old victim who may have intervened and was caught in the crossfire, police said. The victim suffered a non-life-
threatening gunshot wound to one of his arms.

The suspects fled to a nearby black vehicle and drove away going south on Pacific Avenue from Windward Avenue, police said.

One suspect is between 20 and 25 years old, 6 feet tall, weighing about 250 pounds, with dark hair and a beard. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater, long gray shorts, and black shoes.

The other male suspect is about 20 to 25 years old, about 6 feet tall and about 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a baseball cap, a gray hooded jacket, dark pants, and black shoes.

The female companion is 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, about 160 pounds, with long dark hair. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, black pants, and beige sandals.

On Wednesday, March 7 paramedics rushed a man to hospital suffering multiple gunshot wounds. The following day, LAPD arrested 46-year-old Robert Mewhorter in connection with the shooting.
