Poll worker shot outside polling place at Watts elementary school

Kate Mather (Los Angeles Times) | March 5, 2013

A poll worker was injured Tuesday morning when he was shot outside a polling place at an elementary school in Watts, Los Angeles police said.

The altercation apparently began inside the polling place in the auditorium of the 92nd Street Elementary School in the 9200 block of Grape Street, LAPD Officer Christopher No said. The confrontation escalated outside, where the man was shot shortly before 9:40 a.m.

The victim, a 35-year-old poll worker, suffered injuries described as non-life-threatening, No said. Police said they do not believe the shooting was random. No said the two may have known each other and described the incident as a “domestic dispute.”

No said the suspect had been identified by police but had not yet been apprehended.

The school was locked down during the incident. It was not immediately clear if the polling place was affected.
