LOS ANGELES (AP) — A motorist has been shot in the face by a gunman firing from a passing car on a Los Angeles freeway.
Sgt. Rudy Alaniz says a man was driving southbound on Interstate 110 south of downtown when the gunman opened fire Sunday night.
City News Service says one of the rounds struck the victim in the cheek. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening wound.
Alaniz says the victim, a Compton gang member, didn't recognize anyone in the vehicle.
