Police are searching for a suspected gunman who shot and wounded a man in the parking lot of a Hollywood grocery store Tuesday afternoon.
Los Angeles Police Department officers responded to calls about the shooting in the parking lot of the Pavilions store located near the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Vine Street around 4:40 p.m., officials told KTLA.
At the scene, authorities located a man believed to be about 35 years old suffering from a gunshot wound. He was conscious and breathing when paramedics with the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and took him to the hospital.
