This photograph was taken shortly after police arrived on the scene of a shooting Friday, August 9, 2019 in the 100 block of Painter Street. The unidentified male victim was reported in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the upper body.

 

A man was shot and critically wounded by two suspects who fled on foot from the scene in an apartment parking lot shortly before 11 a.m. Friday morning.

Officers rushing to the scene found the victim about one minute and 16 seconds after the call was dispatched to the Community Apartments parking lot near the 100 block of Painter Street, according to Watch Commander Lt. Marcia Taglioretti.

The victim was described by police as an unidentified adult male. He was transported to a local area hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the upper body, according to Police Public Information Officer, Commander Jason Clawson.

The suspects are described only as two black men who fled southbound through the Community Arms parking lot. Police do not have the suspects in custody.

Clawson said it is not known if the incident was gang-related or a street robbery.

He emphasized that the police would like the public’s help to identify the suspects. If anyone saw the incident please call at (626) 744-4241.

Police said you may also report information anonymously by calling “Crime Stoppers” by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), use your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile APP on Google Play or the Apple App Store or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.

“These shootings have to stop, the community is at risk from any shot that’s fired by anybody, so we need to get these perpetrators off the street and hold the people that are responsible for gun violence responsible,” he said.

Detectives worked through the night on the case, Taglioretti said early Saturday.

The Police Department was at this same location just the day before,  Thursday, August 8 conducting community outreach according to Pasadena Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian.
