Local news

Police are investigating a series of BB gun shootings that left windows shattered on several west San Fernando Valley businesses Wednesday morning.

Calls reporting the vandalisms began coming in around 4 a.m., Los Angeles Police Department Officer Lomelli said.

Twelve shootings were reported along Ventura Boulevard in the Woodland Hills and Tarzana areas.

Another seven businesses were struck in the Topanga area, according to police.

Security footage from inside one store on Ventura Boulevard shows a window shatter as a car drives by with its headlights on.

The owner of a store damaged in the attacks said a similar series of shootings took place several months ago.

“Last time it was from Corbin all the way to, I think, White Oak … more than 10 places broken” Arkadi Soghomonyan said. 

Investigators have not released a description of the suspect, or suspects, and there is no known motive for the shootings.

No injuries have been reported.
