Pasadena Shootings Leave 4-Year-Old Boy, Two Adults Hospitalized

A search is on for three gunmen in connection with a shooting in Pasadena which left three people hospitalized.



Evidence markers appear in the street in front a home where two men and a 4-year-old child were wounded by gunfire in north Pasadena on Friday night.

Three people are hospitalized, including a 4-year-old boy, after a shooting in Pasadena Friday night, police said.

Officers answered the shooting call at 8:50 p.m. in the 1800 block of North Summit Avenue (map) in the northern part of the city.

"As far as we know, there were at least three male Hispanics on foot -- in front of the location -- that had fired a handgun toward the residents," Pasadena Police Lt. Jason Clawson said.

"This appears right now to be random," Clawson added when asked about possible gang connections.

The victims were inside a building when gunfire struck them, police said.

Paramedics transported two men, ages 32 and 55, to Huntington Memorial Hospital, police said. A parent took the 4-year-old to the hospital, Clawson said.

The injuries of the men and the child were non-life-threatening, though the child was more seriously injured, Clawson said.

The shooters were descrived as men between the ages of 18 and 20, one of whom had a shaved head.

The motive behind the incident is under investigation.

Anyone with any information should contact the Pasadena detectives at (626) 744-4522.
