Police Investigate 2 Weekend Shootings in Pasadena; No Injuries Reported

Police are investigating two separate shootings in Pasadena this weekend, officials said.

No injuries were reported in connection with either shooting, Pasadena police Lt. Anthony Burgess said.

The most recent took place about 1:20 a.m. Sunday in the 2800 block of East Colorado Boulevard, police said.

In the Colorado Boulevard incident, officers received reports of a woman heard screaming, along with two gunshots, according to Burgess. They discovered a spent 9mm bullet casing on the ground near a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant, but no victims or suspects were present.

A witness relayed that a white Dodge left the area at the time of the gunfire, the lieutenant said. Officers soon spotted a white Dodge Charger at a nearby gas station.

Upon further investigation, police found the driver was in possession of a handgun fitted with a 30-round magazine that had been reported stolen out-of-state, Burgess said. But the weapon was chambered in .45-caliber, which differed from the spent casing found at the shooting scene.

Police arrested the driver, a 21-year-old Sacramento man, on suspicion of weapon-related violations, Burgess said. The man, as well as a female passenger in his car, denied any knowledge of the shooting.

The previous shooting unfolded about 5:30 p.m. Saturday in a residential neighborhood in the area of Flower Street and Marengo Avenue.

Witnesses reported a gray sedan drove north along Marengo Avenue when the driver fired a single shot from within, Burgess said. The car was last seen continuing north along Marengo Avenue.

No victims or property damage was found, he said. No further details were available.

Anyone with information on either incident 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.
