Police Wednesday released security images of two young men being sought in the shooting of a 17-year-old boy in Arleta.

The crime occurred about 1:35 p.m. Tuesday at Woodman Street and Osborne Avenue. The teen was arguing with the men when one of them pulled out a gun and shot him in the leg, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Paramedics took the wounded teen, whose name was withheld, to a hospital for treatment.

The suspects, about 18-20 years old, fled in a silver Toyota Camry with tinted windows.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call detectives at (818) 838-9810, or (877) LAPD-247.
