SHOTS FIRED | South Pasadena:
A 22-year-old Pasadena man told South Pasadena police early Monday morning that a motorist shot at his vehicle as they drove through South Pasadena.
According to South Pasadena Police Sgt. Shannon Robledo, just before 3 a.m. the victim was stopped at a red light behind a white van headed southbound on Fremont Avenue at Alhambra Road. While stopped, Robledo said the suspect, a white male between 30 and 40 years of age, wearing black pants and a gray or black t-shirt, exited the driver’s side door of the van and pointed a black handgun at the victim.
Fearing for his life, Robledo said the victim fled the scene as the suspect fired two shots, striking the passenger side of the car. Minutes later, South Pasadena Police Department received a call from a resident saying gunshots were heard in the area.
Police found two bullet holes on the passenger side of the van upon examination of the vehicle.
San Marino Police Department and Alhambra Police Department officers assisted South Pasadena Police officials in the investigation.
Robledo said neither party knew one another.
