No information was available on what led to the shooting. Four men are being sought who allegedly fled on bicycles.

The earlier incident occurred at 3:15 p.m. Monday at a home on the 6900 block of Variel Avenue near Hart Street, also in Canoga Park.

No details were available on the circumstances, but the victim was reportedly shot in the leg and taken to a hospital where he was listed in stable condition, according to Los Angeles police Lt. Eric Eppolito said.
