The shooting occurred about 5 p.m. at Beckville Street and Broderick Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Walker said.

A 21-year-old Monrovia man was walking in the area when he was approached by a silver Suzuki vehicle containing five male Latinos, the sergeant said.

One of the men inside the Suzuki opened fire with a 12-gauge shotgun, Walker said, striking the victim in the back, legs and buttocks.

He was hospitalized with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, the sergeant added.

No gang-affiliations were immediately apparent, Walker said, however sheriff’s gang investigators were looking into the possibility the shooting was gang-related.
