Taggers Shoot Man on Hollywood Blvd

New, 46 comments

Another incident of someone confronting taggers and paying for it: The owner of an auto body shop was shot by taggers in the 5000 block of Hollywood Blvd yesterday, reports the Times. That address places the shooting somewhere between the Normandie and Gower blocks. And totally disturbing: The incident happened in the middle of the day, at 1 p.m., according to the paper. One resident says that graffiti is common in this area, but tagging less so. Authorities believe that an Armenian gang may be behind the shooting; also, the youths are described as being "not much taller than five feet." Young? [LA Times]
