Here is another reminder that sometimes it's better to take a zen approach when being cut off in traffic.

A man in his 50s was riding his motorcycle when he was cut off by five suspected gang members. Words were exchanged, and the group followed the man home to the 800 block of Indiana Ave. in Venice LAPD Pacific Station Lt. Marco Munoz told City News Service.

The group left only to come back an hour later around 8:15 p.m. A confrontation between the group and the man and his son who is in his 20s ensued. Sgt. Gregory Probst told the L.A. Times that either the man or his son might have had a weapon. Both the man and the son were shot, and the suspects left on foot while yelling out their gang name.

Both the man and his son were hospitalized are expected to survive. No description of the suspects or the vehicle is available.
