A man and woman were hospitalized Saturday morning after being shot in a car that crashed into a sign outside a YMCA in North Hollywood.
The shooting was reported at 7:45 p.m. Friday in the 5100 block of Tujunga Avenue, near Magnolia Boulevard, according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.
“We got information from… witnesses that apparently this started at a fast-food restaurant not too far away from here, possibly the Taco Bell,” LAPD Detective Sgt. Adolfo Godinez told reporters at the scene.
The car crashed into a sign outside the East Valley Family YMCA at 5142 Tujunga Ave.
Madison said when the call came in, one victim was reported to be inside the YMCA and the other in the car.
A witness at the scene told ABC7 he saw the man inside the building.
“He said ‘please help me, somebody call the police, I don’t want to die,’ ” the witness, identified as David, said. “He was running all over and the whole hallway was full of blood.”
The man and woman were taken to a hospital for treatment, police said.
“He is not in a condition to speak, so he’s not giving too much information,” Godinez said. “Not saying that he’s withholding information, just saying he’s not able to speak right now. The female as well.”
The woman reported that she had been shot in a leg, Madison said.
A red BMW may have been involved in the shooting, but that has not been confirmed, Madison said.
