A man was wounded in a shooting this afternoon that took place inside a parking garage in Studio City, but no suspect has been located, according to the LAPD. At 2:09 p.m., a 911 call alerted police of gunshots heard on the 12200 block of Ventura Boulevard, reportedly in the garage of California Pizza Kitchen off Laurelgrove. Upon arrival, officers and paramedics found a man suffering from two gunshot wounds -- one in his leg and another in his hand. LAPD Officer Bruce Borihanh said the victim, only described as Armenian, was transported in stable condition. He said the victim was "very uncooperative" with officers, leaving detectives with few clues, not even a suspect description. At this point, it is unknown if the incident was gang related, but Borihanh said it is definitely a possibility.
