No person has been arrested for the shooting yesterday near Van Nuys Boulevard and Arleta Avenue, which means the assailant is still at large.

The shooting occurred October 27 around 3:45 p.m. near the intersection after the victim, who was in his vehicle, and the suspect, who was on foot, exchanged words, said Sergeant Carlsen from the Mission Police Station.  She said the victim and suspect, described only as a Hispanic male, are from rival gangs.

The victim was wounded on his left arm but managed to drive himself up Van Nuys Boulevard and parked in front of the McDonald’s across the street from Mary Immaculate Church.  He was transported to Holy Cross Hospital, where he is now in stable condition.
