A suspect was in custody Thursday in connection with a shooting — captured on cell phone video — that left a man wounded near the Venice Boardwalk.

The shooting was reported at 10:24 p.m. Wednesday near the area of Windward Avenue and Speedway, said Lt. Joseph Sanchez of the Los Angeles Police Department‘s Pacific Division.

The suspect and victim were involved in a confrontation outside a bar in the area before the suspect fired on the victim. The victim, reported to be in his 40s, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition, Sanchez said.

A cell-phone video of the confrontation, aired by ABC7, shows the suspect and victim scuffling before the gunman steps back into the street and starts firing with a handgun.

An arrest has been made, but no details about the suspect or when and where the arrest was made were immediately available, according to Officer Tony Im of the LAPD’s Media Relations Section.
