The Los Angeles Police Department released details about and images of suspects wanted in a shooting at a Northridge medical marijuana dispensary that took place the night of December 15th. Three suspects showed up at a pot co-op center located in the 8200 block of White Oak Avenue shortly before 9:35 p.m. on the 15th. Once inside, two of the suspects, all male Hispanics, pulled out handguns and shot at the two workers inside the business. One of the victims retrieved a gun kept in the co-op for security and shot back, but his shots were ineffective after being fired at by the suspects.

The shooting was ostensibly a robbery; the suspects took a small amount of marijuana and some cash, as well as what they thought was the security video recorder, and left the scene in a tan Nissan Titan pickup truck.
