Harbor Gateway shooting wounds man on bicycle

City News Service | August 14, 2013

LOS ANGELES – Police today investigated a drive-by shooting that wounded a man in the back and legs as he rode a bicycle in Harbor Gateway, police said.

The shooting in the 600 block of West 168th Street was reported around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Andrew Moody of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Southeast Station.

The man showed stable vital signs when he was taken to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center for treatment, he said.

The shooting appeared to be gang-related because men riding in a four-door compact asked the victim where he was from before someone inside the vehicle opened fire, Moody said.

The victim also told police he was on ‘’a leave of absence’’ from a local gang, Moody said.

Moody declined to say how many suspects were in the vehicle or what the car’s make and model were.
