A 26-year-old man was wounded Sunday night when a man opened fire inside the Yard House restaurant at Northridge Fashion Center, police said.
The man was wounded in the lower body and taken to a hospital,
where his vital signs were stable, according to Officer D. Orris of the Los
Angeles Police Department's Operations Center. His injuries were not considered life-threatening.
The shooting occurred at 8:08 p.m. and stemmed from an argument, police said. The shooter and victim did not know each other, police said.
"They were just patrons inside of the Yard House," said LAPD Officer Melissa Lisenby. "They didn't know each other. For an unknown reason the suspect shot at the victim. Right now, we have a couple of witnesses, but we’re also looking at surveillance footage to see if we can get a better view of the suspect and any other potential witnesses or any other possible suspects."
The shooter was described as a 20-35 year-old man with a gray jacket,
who ran out of the restaurant after the shooting, Orris said. No arrests were reported early Monday.
