A Jewish man was shot and wounded Wednesday as he left morning prayers at around 10 am local time in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood of Los Angeles, a heavily Jewish area.
The victim was walking to his car when the shooter drove up and fired two bullets, near the intersection of Shenandoah Street and Cashio Avenue.
The shooter, who is still at large, is described as an Asian male, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
