Domestic Violence Incident in Venice Leaves Man Shot
A man holding a woman and two children hostage in Venice was shot in the face by police, reports City News Service.
The incident went down at about 1:15 this morning, after a neighbor heard a woman screaming for help and called the cops. When they showed up, they were able to see the suspect pinning a woman against a wall inside the house at Penmar Avenue and Lake Street. They heard a gunshot, and called in the SWAT team.
Soon after police's arrival, the suspect fled the house, at which point he was shot by an officer. The bullet grazed the skin on his face, wounding him but not puncturing the skin. He was taken to a hospital where he's in stable condition.
No one inside the house was hurt, and the suspect will face domestic violence charges as well as possibly charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
