Three Shot in Hollywood on Halloween Night

9:58 AM PDT on November 1, 2012

    Two teenagers and a young man were shot last night just before 10 p.m. near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Whitley Avenue. A 17-year-old boy was shot in the leg and chest and was immediately taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in critical condition. A 14-year-old boy was shot in a foot and taken to County-USC Medical Center, and a 25-year-old man was struck in the buttocks and taken to Cedars-Sinai, he said.

    There is no information on the motive for the shooting, which sent Halloween parties scrambling for safety in a chaotic scene. The aftermath was captured in the photo, above, by Tom Andrews.

    In an unrelated incident, four people were wounded in a shooting on the USC campus in Exposition park.
