A 28-year-old man was shot in his torso and hand near a Cypress cemetery Friday afternoon, but was expected to survive.

Firefighter-paramedics were called about 3:30 p.m. to the Forest Lawn cemetery-mortuary at 4471 Lincoln Ave., but while en route, the first responders were redirected to the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Moody Street, where they found the victim in a vehicle on the side of the street, said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Daniel Yeh.

The victim was taken to a hospital, according to the Cypress Police Department.

The suspect fled the scene and no description was released.

Anyone with information about the shooting was encouraged to contact the Cypress Police Department Criminal Investigation Bureau at 714-229-6631.
