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. The cyclist called paramedics, and the victim was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.

The suspects are still at large, and it's not clear exactly what happened leading up to the shooting. Meanwhile, the victim is in critical but guarded condition.
