Man Severely Wounded in Shooting at Robinson Park in Pasadena

Published on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 | 9:06 am

A shooting at Robinson Park in Pasadena on Tuesday afternoon left a man hospitalized with major injuries, authorities said.

The attack took place about 5:30 p.m. at the park, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., Pasadena police Lt. Sean Dawkins said.

Officers responded to reports of gunfire in time to see numerous people running from the park in different directions, he said.

A short time later, a local emergency room notified police that a man had been dropped off with gunshot wounds to his hip and lower extremities, according to the lieutenant.

The victim, described as a Los Angeles man in his 20s, was listed in stable condition, he said. He did not appear to be cooperating with investigators.

Officers discovered a parked car and a home had also been struck by gunfire from the shooting, Dawkins added.

No suspect description was available.

The shooting followed another that took place in Pasadena on Monday night that left two men hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, police said.

Gunfire was reported about 9:45 p.m. in the 1000 block of North Summit Avenue before 24-year-old men were dropped off at a hospital by private vehicle, according to Dawkins.

Both victims were listed in critical condition.

It was not clear Wednesday whether there was a connection between the two shootings.

Anyone with information can reach the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4501. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
