Police Looking for Armed Gunman Who Shot Delivery Man

No arrests have been made in connection with the robbery.

Police were looking into surveillance footage after a man was shot in the lower portion of his body several times early Tuesday morning during a West Hollywood robbery, authorities said.

"I heard boom, boom, boom, boom, and I knew it was gunfire," Joseph Kaanan said as he heard the shooting down the street from his apartment.

Kaanan said he ran out to help and found a bleeding man lying in the street.

"I think it's amazing that he's alive because the second gunman walked up to him and just opened fire right at him," Kaanan said.

The shooting was reported around 1 a.m. in the 1000 block of N. Kings Road near Santa Monica Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities said the victim was on a food delivery for Bossa Nova restaurant.

He was walking back to his car after making a delivery when he was shot multiple times by armed robbers, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The man was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, and was expected to survive, according to investigators at the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station.

The attackers stole a portable credit card reading machine, used for transactions with customers, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. 

Authorities were searching for two men who were last seen in a silver four-door sedan.
