A man was shot in the head while driving through Cahuenga Pass this morning, Studio City Patch reports.

The shooting victim, described as a man in his 30's, was driving north on Cahuenga Boulevard around 3:30 a.m., when he was shot through his headrest.

The wounded driver was able to make it to a Mobil Station on Barham Boulevard and ask for help. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Although he is listed in serious condition, he has a fuzzy recollection of the events that he is telling police, LAPD Sgt. Mike Kammert told Patch:

The victim told police one of several people in a black sport utility vehicle, another Escalade or a Chevrolet Suburban, opened fire on him, Kammert said, adding that the man appeared to be in shock and gave some other conflicting information.
