Carjackers Shoot Man in Head, Leave Him on Desert Roadside
A 21-year-old man was shot in the head and left on the side of the road yesterday afternoon in a desert area near Lake Los Angeles after an alleged carjacking, reports City News Service.
The man was found by a cyclist who lives in the area, reports KTLA. The victim was able to tell the cyclist that he had been shot in the head after his 2010 Toyotal Camry was stolen.
