“I still can’t believe it happened,” victim Mark Woodcock told a TV station. “I’m glad it was a pellet gun and not a normal gun. Especially where it hit me.”
The home invasion occurred about 3 a.m. in the 2400 block of Grand Canal Court, said Los Angeles police Detective Ross Nemeroff.
Two residents were home when they heard the sound of a window being broken, Nemeroff said.
One suspect aimed a pellet gun at a resident and fired, and the projectile hit him in the chest, Nemeroff said. Police recovered a pellet gun at the scene, the detective said.
No suspect descriptions were immediately released.
