A scatter of possibly gang-related shootings in Westlake this weekend left one man dead and another injured according to the LAPD. At approximately 1:50 a.m. on Nov. 7 officers discovered a man who had suffered a gunshot wound stating, "he was standing on the sidewalk when a car drove by, he heard several gunshots and then felt pain in his leg." A few minutes later another Rampart patrol unit responded to another shooting at the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Park Avenue where they found an abandoned tan colored Mercury van.

Just before 2 a.m., a third Rampart patrol unit was called regarding a shooting victim at a West Temple medical facility where they discovered the gunshot victim had been taken by two unidentified citizens. The victim was pronounced dead by Los Angeles City Fire department rescue personnel.
